The section of Heards Drive in front of Riverwood International Charter School became Raider Drive on Oct. 8 in honor of the Riverwood Raiders. The ribbon-cutting took place as the homecoming parade rounded the corner toward the school entrance. At the intersection of Heards Ferry Road and Heards Drive, dignitaries including Principal Eddie Echols and Sandy Springs City Councilman Chip Collins cut the ribbon. While the name change was championed by the school, it also met the city of Sandy Springs’ desire to eliminate similarly named streets and noncontiguous roadways. At the ribbon-cutting are (from left) Riverwood varsity basketball cheerleaders Tessa Lewis, Jade Ferguson, Sydni Edwards, Aliya Nealy and Jaslyn Brown; Sandy Springs City Councilman Chip Collins (with his children); Riverwood Principal Eddie Echols (cutting the ribbon); Riverwood Athletic Association representative Steve Tart and cheerleader Bria Naylor.
