CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- The process to rename two of Charlottesville’s elementary schools is now done.

At a meeting on Thursday night, the Charlottesville School Board voted to change the name of Clark Elementary School to Summit Elementary and Venable Elementary School to Trailblazers Elementary.

According to a release, Summit Elementary evokes the mountain views from the school and aims to encourage students to reach new heights.

The school was originally named for General George Rogers Clark, a Revolutionary War officer who owned enslaved people and led in the genocide of Native Americans.

Trailblazers honors the Charlottesville 12, the first African-American students to integrate the city’s schools, and invites students to continue blazing new trails today.

It was originally named for Colonel Charles S. Venable, a member of the Confederate Army and math professor at the University of Virginia who perpetuated myths about slavery throughout his life.

The new names were recommended by the Naming of Facilities Committee, which had collected feedback from multiple public forums and surveys.

The third- and fourth-grade students at each school also voted on the name they wanted.

Initially, Clark was going to be renamed Friendship Elementary, because that name was selected by a very narrow margin over Summit.

The school board asked for more feedback from the community regarding this close vote, which was taken into consideration at the meeting on Thursday.

The Naming of Facilities Committee will be meeting next week in order to begin reviewing the names of Burnley-Moran Elementary School and Johnson Elementary School.

This process to review school names to make sure they reflect the community’s values started in 2020. For more information, click here.
