Davidsonnews.net has an update on the new Bailey Road high school which along with the new Mint Hill high school, will open next year. The reporter interviews Terri Cockerham, the new principal at Bailey Road. She said they are having trouble coming up with colors for the high schools because most of them have already been taken by the other 19 high schools in the county. However, she did say that the Mint Hill high school will probably be brown.
…and as the newest kid in town, the Bailey Road school will have to choose a mascot and colors that haven’t already been claimed.So what’s left — brown and grey?
“Well, the new high school in Mint Hill is looking at brown,” Dr. Cockerham pointed out.
The new principal of the Mint Hill high school, Mark Nixon, said today there is no finalization of the colors or mascot for the school. He said they will submit three colors to an executive committee on Monday and hopefully have an idea of what they will be by next week. The name of the school will be decided at the November 10 Board of Education meeting.
Nixon also said he hopes there will be more community involvement from Mint Hill with the new school.
“Mint Hill, with not having students at the new school, hasn’t had a lot of involvement. So we would like to see more since it will be in their community and they will be using our facilities.”
