SPANISH SPRINGS, Nev. (KOLO) - The Washoe County Board of Trustees has voted on a name for the new middle school being built in Spanish Springs.

In a 4-to-3 vote Tuesday, "Sky Ranch" was selected. The chosen name was 1 of 3 finalists narrowed down by the school naming committee. The two other names were Michael Landsberry and Debbie Smith.

At one point, "Michael Landsberry" was the top choice by the naming committee, but in the end the trustees chose to go with a place rather than a specific person.

Thursday, December 14, 2017, a groundbreaking ceremony will be held for the new middle school.
