Mary Winston Jackson Elementary School has a Great Ring to It

The community of Salt Lake City made a pretty good choice to rename one of their elementary schools, formerly named for President Andrew Jackson, who was a white supremacist whose story meant pain for indigenous people and the descendants of bond slavery alike, to represent a hero of the space age, Mary Winston Jackson, whose contribution to science speaks of the value of education and the value of the development of all minds. 

Choosing which history we respect is a reflection of our values. This is a great choice.
