A Springfield school wants to change its name. Staff at Matheny-Withrow School want to switch the name back to just Matheny.
That was the name of the school they came from before it was closed and they were moved into the former Withrow School building.
Both names have local historical significance.
W.O. Withrow was a longtime educator in the community, while James Matheny was a Springfield city founder and longtime friend of Abraham Lincoln.
