New developments in the consolidation of high schools in one school district.
The Martin County Board of Education has approved the renaming of the combination of Bear Grass high school with Roanoke high school to South Creek Cougars. Jamesville will combine with Williamston high and will become the Riverside Knights.
There have been heated debates on the consolidation issue and for many Jamesville parents and alumni, they still can't believe by next year their neighborhood school will be gone.
Superintendent Tom Daly says a group of students from each of the four high schools presented the new mascot and colors to the school board, in which they approved.
