Chaney High School brings back 'Cowboy' logo

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

Chaney High School students have voted to bring back the schools one-time logo, the Cowboy.

According to a press release, the Cowboy was the school's logo before the school became a visual and performing arts and science, technology, engineering, and mathematics school.

The press release informed that Robert Kearns, Chaney's new principal, let the community vote on what the logo should be. 

Kerns presented options for a prospective logo, asking people to vote for their favorite on social media.

"The rich traditions and history of success at Chaney belong to the community and alumni," Kearns said. "As a result, it was very important for us to listen to the feedback from alumni and community members."  

The logo selected is a cowboy silhouette atop a bucking horse. The logo's debut, or reappearance, coincides with athletics returning to the school.

The Cowboys will field a freshman football team this fall with varsity returning next fall.

The social media campaign allowed students, community members, and alumni to vote for their favorite.

"The response of the community and Chaney faithful was overwhelming for preserving the traditional logo of the past," Kerns continued. "As Chaney moves into the future we want our students to be tied into the tradition of success from the past."

CEO Krish Mohip, who decided last August to bring back the Golden Bear as East High School's mascot based on community and alumni input, looks forward to seeing the Chaney Cowboys riding again.

"Our community is rooted in tradition and schools and sports teams play a big part in that," Moship stated in the press release. "Bringing back the same Cowboy logo aligns perfectly with athletics returning to the school."
