Capital School District To Rename Dover H.S. Football Stadium: What Are The Choices?

For the past couple months, a review committee met to discuss the naming of the Dover High School football stadium and the district administration building.  An idea was brought forth in the summer to name the stadium after former Superintendent Dr. Michael Thomas.  Some felt it was too soon as he just retired June 30th of this year.  The review committee has come up with the following four options.  The committee will have it’s final meeting on October 19th at 4pm in the Sentrum Room at Dover High School in Dover.  Capital has their board meeting on October 21st, and I am assuming this will be brought up for discussion.
Proposal submitted to name Dover High School Football Stadium: Michael D. Thomas Football Stadium
Proposal submitted to name Dover High School Football Stadium: Alumni Stadium
Proposal submitted to name Dover High School Football Stadium: Senator Stadium
Proposal submitted to name Capital School District Administration Building: Michael D. Thomas Administration Building

I applaud the Capital School Board of Education for doing the right thing and getting a committee to review this matter.

  1. I have a few more suggestions for naming the stadium. How about: Taxpayers Stadium; or, On Time and Under Budget Stadium; or, Home Equity Stadium? The point is, that a functionary like Thomas was paid great money and benefits to do his job. Naming anything after a functionary is hubris gone a muck. The proper name for this Stadium is of course Senator Stadium. Then, in FY-17 when there will be a fiscal meltdown in Delaware, we can sell the naming rights and create a trust fund for future development.
