Well, the school board, without explaining why, or answering any questions, decided to let the students vote on the new mascot, but the school board, ALONE, decided not to allow the existing Coyote mascot to be on the list of choices to vote for.. They stated they wanted no mascots that are currently in use in the city, but all three choices for mascots are already IN USE in the city by grade schools or junior high schools..

Our school was built in 1922 and for decades was the only high school in town.. eventually in the 60's two more high schools were built..

The two newer high schools are being repurposed as junior high schools and the school board decided to allow both those schools to retain THEIR names and mascots.. So the Raiders and Huskies will live on, while the Coyotes - the original high school here and the only high school with 6 Texas State Championships, the most winning football program and most widely known (other than Odessa Permian due to the movie Friday Night Lights) high school in Texas, completely dissolves into oblivion..

..and regarding the voting, they were supposed to vote middle of January right before the next School Board meeting, but upon finding out about our movement, are trying to push the vote to next week, so that during the school board meeting they can simply tell us "its too late" instead of answering to us why they're doing this to begin with..

Two school board members are Coyote alumni and both have privately stated they want the school building torn down - even tho its been designated as a Texas state historical landmark..

Friendship is like peeing your pants.. Everybody can see it, but only you can feel the warmth..
