I have started a petition for the change of a local Orlando Middle School name. It is currently known as Robert E. Lee middle school. I had a dream to do my best to honor late Deftones bassist Chi Cheng's name for the better of others in my community. Cheng was in a car accident in 2008 and died five years later. I feel because of the Deftones and Cheng's ties with their hometown of Sacramento, who else better could support my cause? The town of Sacremento knew Cheng and the Deftones like they were family because they were. I would greatly appreciate some love and support for our petition.
