Carroll's Manchester Valley High School taking shape

Carroll's newest high school is on the road to being more than just the "northeast area high school."  The school's leadership team unveiled Manchester's logo yesterday, a very fierce-looking maverick, which is the school mascot.  Interestingly, said maverick belongs to New York's Mercy College, and was adopted after finalizing a licensing agreement, according to Manchester's future principal, Randy Clark.  Clark is currently principal at Francis Scott Key High School.

Clark said they felt Mercy's mav depicted "exactly what we were looking for as a logo for our school."  Some of the dozens of submissions from students and the community will also be used in an unofficial capacity, he said.

A few other tidbits:
* The school will take on the academy model that is already in place at Century (in South Carroll) and Winters Mill (in Westminster) high schools.
* Colors are navy and silver/gray
* Four possible school slogans, after narrowing down the selection:
  - Achieving Excellence Together
  - Integrity, Perseverance, Success
  - We Can, We Will
  - Motivation, Achievement, Vision, Service (MAVS)

Manchester Valley is set to open in the 2009-2010 school year.
