See News on the Elementary School Named After Sandy McNutt in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram: When longtime educator Sandy McNutt found out she would be seeing a new school in Arlington with her name on it, she was pretty excited.
"Being honored with my name on a school was never even a thought in my wildest dreams," said McNutt, who was a teacher and principal in the Arlington district from 1978 to 2008 before taking her present position as head of lower school at Trinity Valley School. "Sometimes I ask myself, 'Who gets a building named after them?' And then I think, 'Good gravy, it's me!' "
Sandy McNutt Elementary School, at 3609 S. Center St. on the grounds of Workman Junior High School, is one of two new elementaries in Arlington opening Monday.
