Mascot, colors forum for unified district Saturday

Mar 15, 2013

The unified Ypsilanti-Willow Run school district holds a public forum Saturday morning to give the public a chance to talk about suggestions that have been received for a district mascot and colors. 

Board member Maria Sheler-Edwards is co-chair of the committee looking into mascots and colors.  She says the process will be similar to the way the district's name was chosen, with a pair of public forums to narrow the options down.  She says a final recommendation is expected at the board's March 28th meeting. 

Saturday's forum begins at 10 a.m. at the Willow Run Intermediate Learning Center.  A second forum is scheduled for the evening of Wednesday, March 20th at the Ypsilanti High School media center.
