Change that honors III


There are four middle schools in the Downey Unified School District. They started out as North, South, East, and West Middle Schools. North Middle School was the first to have its name changed, to Grifffiths Middle School (more on that tomorrow).

East had its name changed this school year to Wendy Lopour Doty Middle School after the much loved and respected superintendent who recently retired.


It's a good thing the mascot of the school wasn't tied to the name "East."


  1. Do you need a picture of me since I was at Griffiths when he died and they changed the name :) hehehe

  2. I think its ridiculous. East was my middle school. Honor her with a plaque or something. Dont ruin the name of a school that goes back many decades. Doty Knights just sounds lame.
