Baltimore County Public Schools (BCPS) announced back in October, that the public can submit name ideas for the new northeast elementary school in Perry Hall.
After 1,871 name submissions were sent in from the public, the name nominating contest has been closed and now BCPS is down to two names: Honeygo Elementary and Honeygo Run Elementary.
The public is invited to vote online from Monday, Dec. 4 through Friday, Dec. 22 at 4:45 p.m. between the two names. All BCPS stakeholders, including BCPS staff, students, parents and community members, are permitted to vote, but only one ballot can be casted per person.
I really don’t have a preference. I am just glad that the name Honeygo is being used for both final entries.
With the completion of Honeygo Boulevard from Ebenezer Road to Belair Road in the mid to late 2000s, the name “Honeygo” has been used for Honeygo Run Regional Park, Honeygo Village Center and a few small businesses. It is only appropriate to have “Honeygo” in the new school’s name.
BCPS stated that the results will be reported to the Board of Education during its meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 20 for a first reading, on Tuesday, March 6, for a second reading with public comment, and on April 17 for a third reading and vote.
