Schenck High School name change proposed

EAST MILLINOCKET (WGME) -- A resident is proposing changing the name of the town's high school, saying it is too easily mispronounced to be an offensive word.

Paul Baker is proposing that the town rename Schenck High School after the family that donated part of its lottery winnings to the school for a new roof. That family has said it doesn't want the school named after them.

The school committee will discuss the renaming at a later date.
