Spokane Public School District 81 is looking for nominations for names of new schools and buildings. We nominated Ruben Trejo for the new building for the On Track Academy located on the Shaw Campus. We also nominated Frances Scott (see the link) for the new middle school in NE Spokane on Foothills Drive.
I think Rueben Trejo is an outstanding nominee for the name of any school especially in the Spokane area.
So glad to hear it. We have to let the school board know too.
I would like to nominate Ruben Trejo not only for the fantastic way he represents Spokane but for his artistry and loyalty to his American heritage.
Be sure to let the school board know too.
He was an influential artist in the Spokane area. Love his artworks.
Thanks. Let the Spokane School District Board know too.
Ruben was a talented and hardworking artist who was a friend and mentor to many. He left a hole in our community that will never be filled. To have such an honor would be a lasting reminder of his many contributions to the whole community.
Ruben has my nomination/vote, hands down.
He was a great artist with passion for his work and for his contribution to students.
Ruben Trejo was a Latino/Chicano artist known nationally as a pioneering sculptor, visual artist, teacher, and exhibitor. An internationalist, with indigenous roots in Mexico, Ruben contributed locally as a beloved art professor at EWU, a jazz enthusiast, father, friend, and art Star.
Ruben was a talented artist, a generous friend and a mentor to me and many others. He inspired and touched the lives of many who needed a role model. He was always there 100%. I hope this becomes a reality.
Seconded your nominations Bob. Read both bios and thought both are fine nominees.
