YOUNGSVILLE, La. (AP) - With lots of contenders for the name of the new public high school to be built in Youngsville, the city council has a simple request: Name it Youngsville High School.

The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1WQUagX) the request will be sent to the Lafayette Parish School Board, which has created a naming committee to parse the various suggestions. The committee has not held its first meeting, and no timetable has been given on when a decision will be made.

Youngsville Mayor Ken Ritter said the school board asked if the council had a request to submit it in the form of the resolution. Ritter said he thinks the council’s request should hold a lot of weight with the naming committee.

Youngsville was once home to Youngsville High School, before it was closed during consolidation in 1966.
