Pocatello High School is now undergoing a selection process to identify a new mascot. Community input is welcomed and encouraged. Ideas may be submitted for consideration by filling out this Mascot Proposal form. Submissions will be accepted from Thursday, September 17 through Friday, October 16.
“While we are retiring the Indian mascot, Pocatello High School will continue its rich tradition of paying tribute to our namesake, Chief Pocatello,” said Principal Lisa Delonas. “Our vision is to create a new mascot that weaves in the wonderful history of the school while stepping forward into an exciting new era of Poky Pride.”
A selection committee representing Poky learners, teachers, coaches, administrators, alumni and community members will review and narrow down the submissions to present with input from staff, alumni and community members and a student vote. The top choices will then be presented to the Board of Trustees for final approval. The dates for those meetings are to be determined.
