HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Alumni from one Huntsville high school took to the streets to March.

J.O. Johnson High School Alumni marched Saturday in an effort to keep the school's original name.

Huntsville city school leaders are planning to close the high school and build a $65 million state of the art school. Officials haven't commented on whether the name Johnson would go with the school, but alumni want to keep it.

The new school would be located on Pulaski Pike near Winchester Road.

The plan also includes a new junior high school that would merge Davis Hills and Ed White Middle Schools.
