Board approves Quioccasin Middle School as Byrd’s new name

Vote ends lengthy process
APRIL 28, 9 P.M. – By a 3-0 vote (with one abstention and one absence), the Henrico County School Board Thursday night renamed Byrd Middle School for the region in which it's located.

The board voted in support of Tuckahoe District member Lisa Marshall's suggestion of Quioccasin Middle School, a name that she said reflects more than just the road on which the school sits.

"Quioccasin is more than just a location," Marshall said. "It's also the name of the community with a rich cultural heritage in the Tuckahoe District. I'm confident that our community will support the name Quioccasin with the same level that they have shown the school to this date." > Read more.
