Render unto César

Who knew? Wikipedia has a List of places named after César Chávez.

We can get ready to add one more: today the Oklahoma City Metropolitan Area Public Schools Trust will approve forking over $65k for the last bit of property for the new César Chávez Elementary School on SE Grand west of Lindsay.

At one time there was an Alternative Middle School named for Chávez, over in the Riverside area, but it's apparently been closed; the Latino Community Development Agency now occupies the address.

I think they named a salad after him, too.
