The former first lady has inspired millions of people over the last decade. This is true with regard to fashion, politics, and who could forget her attempted reworking of the school lunch system? To honor her dedication to the American educational system an elementary school, Woodrow Wilson Elementary, is renaming itself after Michelle Obama. This is the second school in California to make a name change in honor of her, the first being an elementary school in Panorama City. When speaking about the revamping of the school and its name Principal Claudia Velez said, “We have the opportunity to have a beautiful new school named after a person who really represents our diversity and values.”
