As a High School Teacher and Runner This Story Brings Happy Tears

https://www.cnn.com/2020/06/24/us/robert-e-lee-high-school-tyler-texas-trnd/index.html

CNN)Trude Lamb, an incoming high school sophomore, has won countless medals for her school's cross country team. But with each victory and celebratory picture, she is painfully reminded of the name that runs across her chest -- Robert E. Lee.

Now, she's saying no more and is demanding change.
In a recent letter to the school board, Lamb wrote that she would no longer wear the school's jersey, which is emblazoned with "Tyler Lee." Tyler stands for the Tyler Independent School District located in the city of Tyler, Texas, and Lee stands for the school's name, Robert E. Lee High School.


I am so proud of this young woman.
