DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Dothan City Schools celebrated a long-awaited occasion: the unveiling and naming of two new school peanuts.
Students, faculty members, and city leaders including Dothan Mayor Mark Saliba were there to welcome the new students.
A few weeks ago, school officials decided to let students submit potential names.
“It’s actually really cool because like it’s a lot downtown and stuff like that, but our students, it’s kinda cool that it’s made for us now,” student Ceona Arnold said.
The community was then encouraged to vote for the best one. The peanuts’ new names are Penelope the Pre-K Peanut and “Ed” Ucation the senior peanut.
