Girard Middle School Gets a New Mascot

Dothan City Board members unanimously approve a recommendation to change the school mascot at Girard Middle School.

The middle school will now join the cat family in Dothan. Instead of being referred to as the "Rebels" students will now be cheering on the "Jaguars."
This was a change that involved the entire school's student body.

"They thought that it was outdated, they thought that it wasn't user-friendly when it came to promoting the
school and that sort of thing," said principal Charles Corbitt.

Students also designed the jaguar. This idea was led by the student government association.
