Aycock Middle School, located in Greensboro’s historic Aycock neighborhood just northeast of downtown, is named for former North Carolina governor Charles B. Aycock, an education reformer and vocal white supremacist. UNCG recently renamed its Aycock Auditorium, and a street in Greensboro also bears the name.

The Guilford County School Board recently held a community meeting to gather feedback about whether to rename the middle school because of Aycock’s white supremacist legacy. Vote above, and tell us what you think in the comments below. We’ll publish the results in the next print issue of Triad City Beat.
