The new elementary school in King has officially been named Poplar Springs Elementary School.
The Stokes News reported that the name decision came after a unanimous vote from the Stokes County Board of Education on Wednesday.
Poplar Springs will be King's third elementary school and is set to open by the fall of 2012 on Hobe Kiser Road off Hwy. 66.
The name was one of five suggested by FOX8 Journalist Chad Tucker. More than 20 names were submitted total. Others include Old Quaker Road, King's Cabin, Mountain View and Virgil Grabs.
Polar Springs takes its title from a campsite near the location, which was popular in the 1800s.
Construction will begin next year and the board is reportedly considering issues such as school colors and a school mascot.
