I heard on another forum that Humes Jr High School is going to be named Elvis Aaron Presley Jr High. If this were true I think this is awesome(y) , what do you guys think?

Further to elvispresleyfan1935....here's some more details that I saw on EIN...
Humes High to be renamed after Elvis?: Lakeisha posted this interesting message on the elvisnumberones bulletin board. If true, it is major news:
"A guy I know who knows I'm a big Elvis fan, who lives near downtown told me that he heard through sources that L.C. Humes Junior High could be renamed ELVIS A. PRESLEY JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL as early as this summer, plus plans to re-renovate the school are in the works as well.
Plus, Memphis Mayor Willie Herenton, Shelby County Mayor AC Wharton, and members of the school board are pushing for an Elvis Appreciation Day for ALL schools throughout Memphis and Shelby County to be in affect by next summer. And from what I hear it's possible that August the 16th could be a day out of school for ALL Memphis and Shelby County students as part of that Appreciation day.
This is big for Elvis in Memphis considering that the school system is 80% black students in the city and about 25% in the county.
This could be the biggest news yet for Elvis! Wait until the media gets this news. It'll be all over the world news and talked about for months to come. This is goin to be HUGE!! It's one thing to have your home registered as a national landmark. But it's even a bigger thing to have a school named after you."
