Ripon Unified may name library at Colony Oak School

The Ripon Unified School District has a policy in place for naming of one of its facilities.

Recently, the school farm went through the process in renaming the former Clinton School Farm at 21033 N. Ripon Road to that of the David Luis Agricultural and Educational Facility.

The district’s continuation site is the Leo Zuber Education Center named after the longtime superintendent and current Ripon mayor.

The Ervin Zador was involved in the “Blood in the Water” water polo match during the 1956 Summer Olympics in Melbourne.

He later moved to Ripon, and was a key figure on that Hungarian team that defeated the USSR. The joint-use swimming pool facility honors his memory.

Now there’s hope of naming the newly renovated Colony Oak Elementary School library.

“We’ve had requests from staff to dedicate the library,” Superintendent Ziggy Robeson said.

But in order to do so, interested members must be part of the board-appointed naming committee.

Trustees were unanimous, voting 5-0 in going forward with the process of putting together the naming committee.

Robeson provided words of caution on the time tables of this process.

“[The naming of the library] might not be done by our Aug. 12 event,” she said, referring to the Colony Oak dedication ceremony of the newly renovated school.

The special event will take place that afternoon, beginning 5:30.
