Campbell School Not to Be Named After Ken Bruce

Fireworks Thursday night in Campbell County as the school board makes a major decision on naming the new Campbell County Elementary School.

School board members voted not to name the school after slain administrator Ken Bruce.

The final vote count: 6-no's, 3 yes's and one board member did not vote.

The ones who voted no said Ken Bruce was among many other well respected educators in the school district and should not be singled out.

There was also a petition in favor of naming the school after Bruce.

Police had to be called after the vote was read because the crowd became upset.
