Rededication Day For Fairfax County School

(Springfield, VA) — A rededication ceremony is scheduled for today to rename the Robert E. Lee High School. A 4:30 p.m. ceremony is scheduled to rename the school in honor of late Congressman John Lewis. The process to rename the school started more than a year ago following Lewis’ death, but was sidetracked by the COVID pandemic. The school, which opened to students in 1958, is one of the first schools in the D.C. metropolitan area tied to confederate history to complete its name change.
