The Falls Church School Board voted unanimously Tuesday night to name the City’s newest school Jessie Thackrey Preschool in honor of the beloved civic leader who passed away last fall at age 100.
The school, which is undergoing major renovation on Cherry Street, is scheduled to open this fall.
How absolutely wonderful. Jessie inspired so many people. To know Jessie was to love her. I am so glad her commitment to the schools and the City are being honored in this way.
