Dear Friends:

Grady Middle School is one of the schools that has been selected to be renamed. Teri Marsh and many others have started an initiative to get Ann Sledge's name in consideration for Grady's new name.

Ann Sledge was the principal at Briargrove Elementary for six years, which feeds into Grady. Her son, along with hundreds of Briargrove students, attended Grady Middle School. Ann was connected to the school in many ways, and she deserves a chance to be considered for this huge honor.

We asked many of you to email Gretchen Kasper, principal at Grady (, Harvin Moore, school board member (, and Mike Lunceford, school board member ( expressing your support in this project. We believe that the school should be renamed after Ann Sledge, and many of you agree and support this idea.

We have been told that it is unlikely that the school will be renamed after a person, but we believe that we have a chance if we continue to express our wishes. Ann has impacted thousands of educators and students, and she deserves this honor.

If you support our efforts to get Grady Middle School named after Ann Sledge, please sign this petition. You can also help by sending an email to the persons noted above (if you haven't already done so). Please also spread the word by asking others to send an email and sign this petition. Together, we can make this happen!

Thank You,
Beth Vilyus Applewhite
