The Lafayette Parish School Board unanimously voted to rename Plantation Elementary after Corporal Michael Middlebrook.

KATC reports that the school will now be named Corporal Michael Middlebrook Elementary School.

Cpl. Middlebrook was gunned down in the line of duty last fall. Now, the board will consider renaming N.P. Moss to Baranco Academy, after a former school board member and civil rights leader in Lafayette.

What an emotional gesture for Lafayette and the family of Cpl. Middlebrook.
