Bozeman's new Gallatin High School released its logo and mascot design for the Gallatin Raptors.
In a press release, Gallatin High Principal Erica Schnee said the raptor mascot was recommended to the School Board after community submissions and "several rounds of student, staff and community voting."
The Board approved the Raptor mascot in May.
Local company Classic Ink was tapped to design the Raptors logo after a competitive selection process.
According to the press release, Classic Ink worked with students, staff, and community members to refine and finalize their designs.
A group of future Gallatin High students was shown a draft of the mascot and were enthusiastic about the design, the release said.
Students from Bozeman High’s Hawk TV class are creating a hype video to reveal the mascot that will be sent to students who will attend Gallatin High next fall when the school opens in 2020.
