Main Points

​As outlined in Policy FF (Naming of School Buildings or Other Facilities), the superintendent may recommend to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education that a portion or specific area on a campus be named for an individual whose name has special significance and/or who made an outstanding contribution to the school or school system.

With the support of the School Leadership Team and the current principal of the school, North Mecklenburg High School recommends that the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education name the existing baseball field "Coach Bill Ross Field" in honor of Bill Ross, a teacher, baseball and football coach at North Mecklenburg High for 15 years. Mr. Ross was a dedicated employee who retired from CMS with 30 years of service.
