New Bloomfield Hills High School Logo to be Unveiled Monday
BHS students from all grades will join administrators at a special ceremony to announce the unified high school's new identity.
After weeks of anticipation, the Bloomfield Hills Schools will unveil the new Bloomfield Hills High School logo Monday in a ceremony that will include students from every building, K-10th grade.
Andover and Lahser high schools are merging for the fall of 2013, and students will be known as Black Hawks, after a bird of prey. Monday's logo choice, to be unveiled at 10:30 a.m., will reflect a student vote for a new identity among three finalists submitted from the general community. They are attached to this story.
Students between the 5th and 10th grades voted after a mascot adjudication committee, which was supervised by art departments at the current high schools, evaluated all the entries. Some administrators have known the results for weeks, but have not spoiled the district's plans for a special announcement by giving any hints.
Students on Monday are expected to wear a variety of Bloomfield Black Hawk gear and WBHF the BIFF will provide music and entertainment, according to a news release. The event is open only to media, but students, staff and district residents can participate in a number of ways.
