East Ridge Raptors is top choice

The East Ridge Raptors was the top choice for the new high school's mascot at a community meeting held Tuesday, according to a press release.

A community group is recommending the mascot, and colors navy and red for the school being built in Woodbury and scheduled to open in 2009.

The group also chose an insignia and song, based on more than 200 nomination forms from the public, and 1,400 votes in an online survey, according to the press release.

The decision-making process included four community meetings, which were open to the public.

The recommendations will go before the School Board for approval Thursday night.
