The school board voted unanimously earlier this week to change the name of Andrew Jackson Elementary School to Mary Jackson Elementary School, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.

The school's name now honors the first black female NASA engineer whose story was featured in the film “Hidden Figures.”

It is also the first Utah school to be named after a woman.

3. Well done, Salt Lake City school board!

Now, about the $20 bill. Our nation should take a lesson and example.

13. Smart!

Probably won't even need to put up a new sign on the school (maybe just remove the first name from it).
