|Lula Mae Ridge wouldn't |
have sounded right.
From Nicole Kirby, PR rep for the District:
"This was the top choice of the naming committee after its second effort to narrow the list of community suggestions. The committee recommended this name because it referred to the historic Tiffany Springs township, which inspired the most name suggestions from the community, and because it combines the names of the two neighborhoods between which the school is located Autumn Ridge and Tiffany Place."Works for us. We love Audrey Hepburn. And Tiffany Miller at the Main Street Inn and Piropos' Piano Bar. And Tiffany's. (Do you know you can't just walk in there and buy one of their signature turquoise boxes but that they will, indeed, engrave a ring from a Cracker Jack box for you? See the movie.) We also like many ridges and Ridges potato chips which, sadly, are not sold in the Kansas City market.
And for those gung ho daddies out there who lament the feminine name, relax....it's an elementary school. They don't have a football or wrestling team. Anyway, think of it in the terms of "A Boy Named Sue." This is a good thing.
Hey, my elementary school was called "Nut Swamp." Go ahead...take your time and have a little fun with that one.
