Dear Editor,

I am a 1978 graduate of RE Lee HS. In the past 3 years I reached out several times to the Principal, and the school paper, of which I was co-editor, and never received a response. My university, Penn State, has much greater use and respect for alumni. Lee HS is a sliver of the proud school it once was, an underachieving mess of a place now.

The focus should be on improving student performance, and not on emotionally race-baited policies like a name change. Gen. Lee was first and foremost a VIRGINIAN. The rich and unique history of the Commonwealth is what makes Virginia distinctive among the 50 states of the great Republic. FCSB, show a little pride and respect.
