Anyone interested in helping choose the name of the new Bellevue area high school has until Thursday morning to complete a survey evaluating each of the six finalists.

Why is this important: Mayor John Cooper has committed $ 129 million to build the new school, which will replace the current Hillwood High School. The public vote will help determine the new name, and those interested can take the poll here.

  • The six finalists: Bellevue, Bellewood, Cecil Branstetter, Hillvue, Hopepark and James Lawson.

Driving the news: School board member Abigail Tylor will present the survey results to the nominating committee ahead of the November 23 board meeting.

  • Tylor says she’s impressed with some of the creative school names suggested by the students. Some of his favorites are Fortnite High, Mr. Meredith’s Cheeze Wiz Factory High, and “Insert Student Name” High.
  • “My favorite was the Center for Kids Who Can’t Read in a good high school,” Tylor told Axios. “Any kid who knows their ‘Zoolander’ should be rewarded.”
