A mascot has been chosen! The Ravena Coeymans Selkirk Central School District is now the Home of the Ravens. In the end, 46% of the 2,500+ voters selected the Ravens, with 37% choosing the Raptors, and 17% selecting the Swarm. We thank our community and students for participating in several rebranding surveys over the course of the last six months.
Now the mascot has been chosen, we move forward with a student art contest. Students will submit their concepts for what our mascot will look like and our community will cast one final vote for our new logo. If needed, a professional graphic artist will render our new logo for print and digital use. Our new name and logo will be slowly implemented with full implementation for our teams during the 24-25 school year and final updates to our facilities by June 30, 2025.
This is a time of reflection on the nearly 70 years that we were known as the Indians. We acknowledge the retirement of our mascot as a meaningful community effort and are grateful for all who have participated in this process.
