Auburndale has new mascot
By Hub City Times staff
AUBURNDALE – The Auburndale School District and community has chosen a new mascot.
“After many months, working with community members, staff, and student leaders, taking surveys, holding community listening sessions, sending out district-wide mailings, and counting your votes, the School Board has approved the new School Mascot/Label for Auburndale based on the overall top vote getter… We are, The Auburndale Eagles,” the school district announced in a May 22 Facebook post.
“The Auburndale Eagle represents our strength; pride; the wisdom of our community; the ability, skill and speed of our students-athletes; the tenacity and dedication of our staff; the prowess and deep-rooted greatness of our students; and community-wide spirit of grace that makes our school, our students, and all of us soar.”
The district dropped its former Apache mascot in 1998 and used an “A” symbol in its place.
