Principle of Coffeen Elementary School, Nicole Trahan, approached the Sheridan County School District #2's board of trustees Monday night to propose changing the name of her school.
Trahan suggested to the board that her school's name be changed to either Henry A. Coffeen Elementary School or Henry Asa Coffeen Elementary School. She explained she's requesting the name change to clarify that the school is named after a man who was a founder of the community,and not after one of the town's major avenues.
Trahan suggested the change take place when the new school building is constructed. The suggestion received several supportive statements from trustees, but no action was taken, as this was the first introduction of the idea.
