Adair County School Board Adopts new school name, street name

Story in progress
  • School name, street name adopted in keeping with other facilities

By Ed Waggener

The new Adair County elementary school was officially named "Adair County Primary Center," at the 12pm noon CT, special regular October 22, 2012 meeting of the Adair County School Board.

After a month long period taking suggestions from the public through the media, and after letters were sent home to Colonel William Casey parents, the consensus was to name the facility Adair County Primary Center, giving the school name parity with the other three schools, Adair County Elementary, Adair County Middle School, and Adair County High School.

The school will be located on "Col. Casey Drive," again following a pattern in place for the other "drives" on the the campus: Gen. John Adair Drive, Indian Drive, and Booster Drive.

Superintendent Alan Reed said that had the new school simply been a transfer from one building to another, the Col. Wm Casey Elementary School name might have been retained. "But it's not," he said. "Col. Casey Drive," was selected for its simplicity, and after a check with Adair County 911 Mapping and Addressing Coordinator cleared the name as available for the private passage.
