AISD renames Fulmore MS for Sarah Beth Lively

AUSTIN (KJCE) -- Austin ISD trustees voted Monday night to rename Zachary Taylor Fulmore Middle School

Lively served as a social studies teacher at Fulmore for 25 years and volunteered at the campus following her retirement. The district says she also dedicated time mentoring student journalists working on the school's newspaper program.

The name change will take effect beginning with the 2019-20 school year.

Fulmore marks the third AISD facility with ties to the Confederacy that has been renamed. Lee Elementary was renamed for Russell Lee in 2016, and earlier this year the John T. Allan facility was renamed for Anita Ferrales Coy. Trustees are still considering name changes for John H. Reagan High, Sidney Lanier High, and the Johnston campus that currently houses Eastside Memorial High School.
