There will be a public process in February-March to accept nominations for the name of the school. The AISD board intends to make the decision at their March 18 meeting.
The North Lamar / Georgian Acres neighborhood team, and many other neighbors, will nominate “Juan P. Navarro”. Resolved:
The Pantoja-Navarro family, originally from Mexico, are long-time Rundberg residents, attending Barrington, Webb and Lanier;
Juan Navarro graduated from Lanier High School in 2007, enrolled at Texas State University as the first member of his family to attend college, and was killed during military service in Afghanistan in 2012;
Juan Navarro is remembered by his peers and by younger students for his selfless dedication, loyalty to others, helpful advice, and infectious smile;
The Pantoja-Navarros are just one of the thousands of Rundberg-area families, supported by Austin ISD teachers and staff, who are raising strong productive awesome children;
The North Lamar Combined Neighborhood Plan Contact Team nominates “Juan P Navarro”, as the name for the new north central elementary school in memory of the life of Sgt Navarro and in recognition of all the parents and educators in our neighborhood.
