Should Algonquin athletes soar like Eagles (or Falcons or Golden Eagles)? Or would you rather they boom like Thunder, lead the way to victory like Trailblazers (or Navigators), or bury their opponents like Nor Easters?
The nine choices for Algonquin mascot also include Owls and Titans.
After narrowing down the list of potential symbols to replace the Tomahawks, the school’s Mascot Study Group vetted its list of nine with “local Native American leadership”. Apparently, all were supported as viable choices.
Now the group is seeking public feedback from the Algonquin community. Ultimately, students will choose from a shortened list:
The Mascot Renaming Study Group is collecting another round of community feedback to help reduce the number of mascot options that will be ultimately presented to the student body for a vote. . .
We would like your input to identify the top choices.
The results of the survey will help guide the Study Group’s decision to reduce the number of acceptable options. Once the list is reduced, we will engage with a branding consultant to conduct a deeper dive into the mascot options and produce visual representations of what each mascot option will look like.
We are excited about the work ahead and look forward to hearing from you about your top choices.
