Braswell High to unveil school colors, mascot on Sept. 10

Will it be Badgers, Bengals, Bison, Bruins or Buccaneers? And, could fans be cheering the crimson and white; waving light blue and white poms-poms; sporting maroon and black spirit wear; singing the praises of the orange and black or “bleed” red and black come game time?

Future Braswell High students and families can learn the answer at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 10, in the Navo Middle Cafeteria for the school’s “Meet the Principal” Night. Braswell’s administration, including Principal Dr. Lesli Guajardo and Campus Athletic Director Cody Moore, will officially unveil the new comprehensive high school’s mascot and colors at the meeting.

“After a three-week campaign that included voting by students in grades four through 10 who live in the 380 Corridor, we are excited to finally have a selection,” said Dr. Guajardo, Braswell principal.

The process for the selection of a mascot and colors began this summer with a committee of students and community members who worked to narrow a lengthy list of suggestions to five mascots and five color combinations. Students who currently reside in the elementary attendance zones near the new school and the Navo Middle School attendance zone voted via web-based polling to reach the final selection.

The Braswell High campus is currently under construction in Little Elm at the intersection of U.S. Highway 380 and Navo Road. The school is named for retired superintendent, Ray Braswell, and will also house the Bill Carrico Athletic Complex, named for a longtime Denton ISD coach and teacher.
