Public Comments for the Naming of the Gene F. Rackley Paint/Grounds Shop
Mr. Gene Rackley started his service with New Hanover County Schools in 1998 as an Electrician with the Maintenance Operations Division. He was the Paint/Grounds Foreman until his untimely death while on the job on October 27, 2015.

The Maintenance Department would like to honor the memory of Mr. Rackley by naming the building that houses all of the Paint/Grounds team members after a gentleman that was considered to be a true asset to Maintenance Operations. Mr. Rackley had a significant impact on his staff, as well as the school district in general. Many kind words and special memories about him are still being shared today. He worked as a trusted member and Foreman of the SMART Team within Maintenance. This was a group assembled from the different trades to respond to the needs at each site. He was also a trusted member of the “On-Call” Team for many years. This team responds to emergency situations 24/7, 365 days a year. Naming the building that contains the personnel he directly supervised would allow them to honor his contributions and preserve his memory as a valuable member of the Maintenance Operations staff.

Pursuant to School Board Policy 5400, the Board of Education will accept public comments for a period of six months, beginning March 7, 2017. Please complete this form with any comments regarding the naming of this facility.
