Colorado’s Columbian high school is changing its name to Colorado State’s Centenary High School in recognition of the Centennial Trail’s centennial.
The school announced the change on its website.
According to the school, the name change was made to honor Centennial Boulevard, a scenic stretch of highway that runs through the city of Aurora.
“This is an opportunity to honor the Centenary Trail and the countless years of service the students have received from our community,” the school said in a statement.
With the naming change, the school will become Colorado State, which is located in Fort Collins.
The Centennial is a city in the northwestern part of the state.
It is located near the confluence of the Colorado River and the Missouri River.
