Thank you for your ongoing interest and support as we select the mascot for the new Mecklenburg County Middle School and Mecklenburg County High School. There has been a very good response to the surveys that have been presented to the public. The Phoenix and the Mavericks were the two top choices from the last survey. The interesting result of that survey was that the Phoenix was the top choice of our school students, and the Mavericks the top choice of adults in the community. The Phoenix came out ahead by a margin of 2%. We are now asking the community to cast one more vote. Please select between the two top choices, or write in a selection that you feel would serve our schools better. Should you choose to write in a selection please keep in mind that there are important limitations that must be considered:
A. We prefer to avoid a mascot that already belongs to another school team that we could be competing with in the futureB. We cannot use a mascot image that is licensed to a university or professional sports team. C. Barons, Dragons, Trojans, and Cougars are important icons that belong to our history and cannot be repeated.
This survey will be open to your vote until midnight on Thursday, June 6th. We look forward to hearing from you!
