New Edmonton School to be named for Joey Moss

The new school is set to open in the fall of 2022.

A new school in southwest Edmonton will be named after the late local sports hero Joey Moss.

The decision to name a new K-9 school after Moss was made on Tuesday by the board of trustees.

Moss captured Edmonton's heart as the locker room attended for their pro teams for years and was later inducted into the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame in 2015.

Moss passed away last October at the age of 57.
