from the Guilford County Schools:
Consideration for Naming the new Western Guilford High School Gymnasium
Pursuant to our procedure on the naming of school facilities (FDCA-P), the Facilities Committee has received input from our citizens regarding the naming of the new gymnasium at Western Guilford High School. The name “Bill Hollifield Gymnasium” has been submitted by members of the Western Guilford High School community.
Bill Hollifiled served in a variety of roles including educator, assistant head football coach, head wrestling coach and assistant track coach at Guilford Middle School and Western Guilford High School for 33 years. He was twice named Western Guilford Teacher of the Year and received the honor of Conference Wrestling Coach of the Year several times. Mr. Hollifield retired from Guilford County Schools in 1999 and passed away in 2008.
RECOMMENDATION: The Facilities Committee recommends that the Board reviews the nomination for consideration in naming the new Western Guilford High School Gymnasium and open a 30-day period of public comment in order seek comments on the proposed name.
