Cabarrus may name school for Winkler
“Dr. Winkler leads with a firm but understanding hand”
Cabarrus County's newest high school being built on Cox Mill Road might be known as H.E. Winkler High.
Other name suggestions for the school, set to open in two years: Bernie A. Edwards, West Winds, Odell, and Cox Mill. Those five proposals were presented at a county school board hearing Thursday..
Board member Cindy Fertenbaugh proposed the school be named for Cabarrus Schools Superintendent Harold 'Butch' Winkler, who has guided the district for 12 years. With Winkler's announced retirement, Fertenbaugh said, it's appropriate to name a school after him. Read more

Will all due respect, this would be a short-sighted decision. A precedent was recently set with the opening of Hickory Ridge High School. It's terribly difficult for students at a new high school to forge an identity when their school has no geographic nor historical connection. I applaud Dr. Winkler's wonderful stewardship of CCS over the past few years, but to me, Cox Mill High School is clearly the best choice for this new school and its students.
