Former Kennedy Elementary Getting A New Name
ST. JOSEPH - The old Kennedy elementary building in St. Joseph is getting a new name.
The students at the new Kennedy Community School came up with the name "Colts Academy".
The Executive Director of Business Service Kevin Januszewski says the biggest reason for the change is to avoid confusion between the two Kennedys by police, fire and security.
The name change is expected to be approved by the school board, during their meeting tomorrow (Thursday) night.
Januszewski says the district does not have the building for sale right now. He says they lease about 5,000 square feet of space to a daycare. They use other parts of the building for storage.
