Reflect city pride

Shame on Gil Navarro for trying to turn the naming of the high school to be built in Grand Terrace into a racial issue ("Board OKs name for new high school," March 13). The San Bernardino County Board of Education trustee said naming the campus after Ray Abril, who once served on the school board, would send a positive message to Latino students.

Colton High School is named for the city of Colton. Bloomington High is named for the city of Bloomington. Grand Terrace residents are proud of our city, just as the residents of Colton and Bloomington should be proud of their cities. That is why we want our school to be named Grand Terrace High School.
