AHS Brand and Logo Transition
During a special July 2 meeting, the Forest Hills Board of Education voted 4-1 to approve the retirement of the Anderson High School Redskins logo. The decision comes after years of community discussion, input and significant work to support inclusivity and diversity across the district.
The process to select a new brand/logo for AHS is lead by a steering committee that includes staff, students, alumni, and community members. The steering committee includes the following subcommittees: Selection Process, Branding, Communications, Fundraising and Honoring the Past. The logo, which has been in place for more than eight decades, will be phased out in stages. This process is currently underway with the goal of unveiling a new mascot by the end of the 2020-2021 academic year.
