Naming Committee may decide on recommendation for R-8 Early Childhood Center Monday
That is exactly what the Joplin City Council, prodded by Mayor Michael Seibert, recommended to the R-8 Board of Education last week.
The other two finalists are the late Melissa Fuell Cuthert, who founded Carver Nursery School in Ewert Park in 1951 and the late Stephanie Stevens, who worked in early childhood education for the R-8 District.
The reason given for Richard's nomination is that he was able to maintain money to make the building possible.
The Naming Committee will likely come up with a recommendation when it meets 5 p.m. Monday at the Memorial Education Center.
