CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The mayor of Harvey is proposing a measure that would rename the Harvey Community Center after Dr. Maya Angelou.

Mayor Eric J. Kellogg and the City Council of Harvey have offered their condolences to the family of Angelou after her passing Wednesday morning.

“Today the world has lost one of its greatest gifts. We are grateful for all that Dr. Maya Angelou has taught us with her words and spirit. Dr. Angelou was a self-taught master of the written word. She spoke no less than six languages. She was truly a phenomenal woman who gave us all strength and insight. We offer to her family our deepest condolences, thoughts and prayers,” says Mayor Kellogg.

On June 9, Mayor Kellogg will be proposing the measure at a meeting with the Harvey City Council. He hopes to change the name to ‘The Dr. Maya Angelou Community Center of Harvey, Illinois.’

The Mayor anticipates unanimous approval of the measure.
