NISD: Adams students choose lion as mascot, navy blue and white as school colors
Adams Middle School students have chosen the lion as their mascot as well as navy blue and white as the school colors, setting the first part of the new campus’s identity before its August 2018 opening.
Principal Cynthia Webber presented the students’ selection to the Northwest ISD school board at its regular meeting on Monday, Nov. 13, stating that they chose the mascot and colors from other student-suggested options. The choice of a lion as the school mascot pays homage to the campus namesake, Leo Adams, as the “Leo” astrological sign is represented by a lion. The navy blue chosen as a school color will be the same navy blue used in the high school Adams will feed into, Eaton.
Mrs. Webber and district officials will now work with the school’s architects to create a logo based on the lion mascot and blue and white school colors.
Adams Middle School is currently under construction in the southern portion of the district, across the street from Eaton High School and Schluter Elementary School. It uses the district’s most recent prototype design for middle schools, also seen in Wilson Middle School.
Rezoning efforts for the school will begin in the spring, with district officials aiming to present proposed boundary maps before spring break begins on March 12.
