Name that Wellesley High School house

2012 Wellesley High School signWellesley High School, which under new principal Jamie Chisum is reorganizing into a  house system to better align administrators with students, is reaching out to the school community to name its houses.

The school has relied on the Wellesley Historical Society‘s resources and the contributions of Wellesley History blogger Joshua Dorin to come up with short list of historically significant names. Our favorite is naturally Brown House since our last name is Brown.

The other candidates are Bradford, whose name was on the old high school, Cameron/Jennings, Kingsbury, Perrin, Phillips and Shaw. Guess there are already enough things in town named after the Hunnewell family.

Voters taking the survey should pick 3 names from those above. The selection process is open until Aug. 4, and after results are in, they will be sent to the School Committee for a final decision.
