UPDATE: All Heritage-zoned students should have received a letter with information and instructions on giving input for the school mascot and colors. The deadline for giving input is tomorrow, Friday, January 30th.
The MHHS Mascot/Color Committee met again on Wednesday, January 7. The committee welcomed new members to the group to represent "Heritage-zoned" students.
These new committee members are:
6th graders - Emily Conrad and Gabe Bell
7th graders - Lainey Bartlett and Spencer Childs
8th graders - Hayley Cagle and Ben Allen
9th graders - Makayla Mabra and Hunter Elgin
Next week, after the "Junior Option" deadline has passed, the committee will include some current 10th graders who will represent the first junior and then first senior class at MHHS. Their input will be extremely valuable.
There were over 700 entries received from Midlothian students, staff, parents, and community members who gave their input through the on-line form that was posted from late November through January 6th. Thank you all very much for your valuable feedback!
From the data gathered, the committee has narrowed the mascot/color choices for Midlothian Heritage High School to the following:
Jaguars - Blue, Orange & Chrome
Jaguars - Blue & Gold
Pride (Lions) - Blue, Red & Chrome
Pride (Lions) - Blue & Gold
Tigers - Blue, Orange & Chrome
To explain the unique option of the "Pride"; The "Pride" is an option that represents a "Family of Lions." This mascot would incorporates all of the qualities of an individual lion, but added to that would be the elements of team, unity, loyalty and family of a "Lion Pride."
These five choices will now be presented to all known future MHHS students who are currently in 6th grade through 10th grade. Each student will get one vote to submit to the committee by Friday, January 30th. More information about this process will be available and sent out this week to these students.
The committee will meet one more time on February 4 to analyze the data from the Heritage-zoned students. The committee will then take the top three mascot/color choices to the MISD School Board for consideration and official decision and adoption of the MHHS mascot and school colors.
Thank you all for your participation and shared excitement about this process!

Each January, we pause to express our appreciation for a very special group of volunteers: the Midlothian ISD School Board of Trustees. The 2014-2015 Board members are Todd Hemphill (president), Keith Hitt (vice-president), Matt Sanders (secretary), Duke Burge, Jim Mentzel, Tom Moore and Carl Smith (trustees).
Usually, we don't think of school board members as school volunteers, but they do in fact volunteer to serve. School board members give their time, energy, and counsel to the school district without pay. They take on the job of governing the district - making the best decisions they can for our children - with the full understanding that they will receive only the satisfaction of their contribution.
