Peoria Schools To Drop Woodrow Wilson’s Name From School

Peoria’s first African American doctor will have her name on one of the city’s school. The Peoria Public School Board yesterday voted to rename Woodrow Wilson Primary School in honor of Doctor Maude Sanders. Board President Martha Ross says kids in Peoria need to see more of their history at their schools. Only one school board member voted against the name change, saying he worries about the precedent that it sets.
