MOSES LAKE — Moses Lake School District administrators have announced the new logo to go with the new name of the Moses Lake High School mascot, the Mavericks.
The new logo depicts a bull in the school’s maroon-and-gold color scheme.
“Student and community input was crucial for finding the mascot that represents our community,” according to an MLSD press release.
“The new mascot evokes strength, determination and perseverance – embodying the values of community and the future of Moses Lake High School,” the press release said.
Students at the high school were previously known as the Chiefs, but district officials were required to change the mascot after the passage of HB 1356 by the Washington Legislature in April 2021. The law prohibits the use of Native American names, symbols or images in public school mascots, logos or team names without formal permission from the appropriate federally-recognized Native American tribe.
