The Naming Committee is composed of School Board members Dr. Babur B. Lateef, (Chairman At-Large), Jennifer T. Wall (Vice Chairwoman, Gainesville District), and Adele E. Jackson (Brentsville District). The committee will consider geographic or historical identifiers, as well as names of living or deceased person(s) who have made local, state, or national service contributions. If a name of a person, selection preference shall be given to those individuals who have made significant contributions to the field of education, especially within Prince William County.
