Shortly after being sworn in Tuesday night, trustee Tobi Jackson thanked longtime trustee Jean McClung
for her 20 years on the school board. Jackson beat McClung earlier this month for the District 2 seat, which represents parts of east Fort Worth.
Jackson suggested trustees consider renaming the new Forest Middle School, set to open in 2011, in honor of McClung. During her time on the board, McClung pushed to establish the district's truancy court and for gender-based schools, the first of which opens in August. Trustee Judy Needham also expressed support for naming the middle school after McClung.
