For years, Bullitt Lick Middle School had a nickname that wasn’t the kindest of monikers.
There is a proposal now to change the school’s name and maybe even its mascot and colors. This is not the right way to reach the desired results.
Kids will be kids and they probably have nicknames for all their rival schools.
However, for the past 33 years, Bullitt Lick has been a part of the community.
Yes, it has suffered through some tough educational times but simply changing a name will not erase any or all of the school’s history.
Heather Terrell, a staff member at the school, was right. Instead of forgetting the school’s past, why not be proud of the progress made and the work done to make it a successful school.
Bullitt Lick is a part of the community and its name should not be changed. Many good things are happening and many great things have been done in the past. We hope the council decides that more must be done to make change than simply altering the letters on the outside of a building.
