Elkhart Promise

The new merged Elkhart high school got a new name and mascot Tuesday night.

After a committee, more than 800 suggestions-narrowed to five, and votes by students--the name was to be Elkhart High School with a Mangy Lion mascot.

The board took issue with the ‘mangy’ part. Board member Glenn Duncan, “And the mascot I recommend as the Lion, not the Mangy Lion. That’s my motion.”
