Will it be the Lebanon Trail Blazers, Lynx, Longhorns or Wranglers?
Future students of the new Frisco ISD high school voted in January – their choice will be revealed before the Texas Legends game on Friday, Feb. 19 at Dr Pepper Arena.
The game versus the Bakersfield Jam begins at 7 p.m. The mascot will be revealed just before the game, at approximately 6:45 p.m.
Frisco ISD families are invited to purchase discount tickets to the game to hear the announcement first-hand. Tickets are available through Feb. 18 at this link.
Lebanon Trail Principal Devin Padavil visited current eighth graders at Clark, Fowler and Hunt middle schools in January to meet students and ask for their input regarding the school mascot, values and other ideas for their new school.
Lebanon Trail High School is named for the community of Lebanon, which predated Frisco by about 50 years. Lebanon grew in the 1800s as settlers moved to Texas looking for land and opportunity. It was a stopping place for ranchers moving cattle along the Shawnee Trail, which became known as the Preston Trail, and later, Preston Road.
School colors are green and gold.
Finalists for school mascot were chosen based on suggestions from future students, families and the community at large. The winning choice garnered 53.6 percent of the vote, with the second choice earning 41.7 percent.
“I’m excited to continue working with students and parents to build a culture for our new school,” Padavil said. “The Class of 2020 will establish what it means to be a part of Lebanon Trail High School – from starting clubs and organizations to leading the school for years to come. It only makes sense that they start by picking a mascot that will define future traditions and values of our school.”
Lebanon Trail High School is the ninth Frisco ISD high school. It will open this August at 5151 Ohio Drive with freshman only.
