Prince William County Public Schools will hold a second Community Input Session on the renaming process of Stonewall Jackson High School  and Stonewall Middle School through a virtual meeting. The meeting will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, June 25. Members of the public are encouraged to attend the meeting and provide suggestions, recommendations, and justifications for names for the middle school and high school located in Manassas.

During the virtual meeting, following a brief presentation, the Naming Committees for the two schools will receive input from the community on renaming suggestions for each school. Those wishing to speak will need to register in advance. Each registered speaker will have three minutes to share their suggestion(s) along with any justification they feel is appropriate.

There are two Naming Committees, one for each school. The Naming Committee for Stonewall Middle School includes School Board members, Babur B. Lateef, M.D. (Chairman At-Large), Adele E. Jackson (Brentsville District), and Jennifer T. Wall (Gainesville District). The Naming Committee for Stonewall Jackson High School includes School Board members, Babur B.
