The selection of a new mascot for the combined Ypsilanti-Willow Run school district is being led by an advisory group of board and community members. Student focus groups on this topic also were formed at all of the secondary schools, and the adult committee has met with each of the student groups to get their feedback.
"The students have indicated they want to be involved in this process and they have lots of great ideas," Board Trustee Maria Sheler-Edwards, who is co-chairing the advisory committee, said in a media release Thursday. "The student feedback has been upbeat and positive and we are looking forward to working with the community to select a mascot."
