Here are the details on the school website:
At the request of the school district administration and community members, the Kennewick School District Board of Directors authorized the district to initiate the process for the designation of the Kamiakin High School gymnasium.
The district is looking for name suggestions that deserve community recognition. When submitting your idea, please include the rationale for your recommendation. All members of the community are welcome to participate. The deadline is October 21.
A Gymnasium Nominating Committee, made up of students, parents, staff and community members, will review the submissions, review the rationale, and make recommendations to the school board at the November 17 board meeting. The board can choose from the list of names or choose another name for the gymnasium.
