Our Mascot Has a Name – Miles Magnus
After four years, MileStone Academy has a mascot all its own. Miles Magnus was officially named on December 21.
In 2015, students picked the fox as the mascot of the school; we had T-shirts designed with art work from the vendor which meant we could not use it for anything else.
When we hired a recent art school graduate this fall, we asked her to design a fox. She submitted four designs, and the school community voted on the design they liked. After the design was selected, we had to give our fox a name. We asked for name suggestions and got several great names for our community to vote on.
As with other elections, there were voters who didn’t like any of the names, but they had not offered any suggestions, so they could vote or not. I am happy to report they voted.
When the votes were counted, we had two names with most of the votes. Miles received one more vote than Magnus, so we combined the names.
Thanks to everyone who participated in the process over the years.
