Leaders name new Mt. Vernon gym

Posted: Updated:

JEFFERSON CO. -- The Mt. Vernon High School gym at the new campus finally has a name.

Last year, the school board looked at possibility of a new name. Tuesday night, the school board voted to name it after former basketball coach, Stanley Changnon.

The old Rams gym was named after Changnon in the 1980s.

"The students and the community are excited about continuing the tradition that was that at the old campus to the new campus, and we're excited what lies ahead for the school and for the programs here at the high school," said school board member Matthew Flanigan.

School leaders say there will be a dedication ceremony at the first basketball game in December.
