The Owego-Apalachin School District Introduces New River Hawks Mascot Imagery
Some imagery of the new River Hawks mascot has been unveiled by the Owego Apalachin Central School District. Community feedback and the Owego Free Academy student mascot committee were a part of the process of the new River Hawk's name and imagery.
According to the O-A School District, the logo features the majestic head of an osprey with red and blue colors mirroring the markings of the bird. The image honors the school district's history, traditions, and future as well.
The design was designed by an Owego Free Academy graduate, underscoring the deep-rooted connection the community has with its new identity. The River Hawks imagery will be integrated into all aspects of school life in the Owego-Apalachin School District as well as the community it serves.
This transition is a testament to the importance of community, pride, and tradition. Change can be difficult, and we acknowledge the various emotions of moving on from a long-standing mascot. This new chapter reflects the district's dedication to creating an educational environment that honors its rich history while embracing future opportunities. I’d like to thank everyone who participated during the process, especially our student mascot committee. - O-A School District Superintendent Dr. Corey Green
Additional images are still in the design stage and will be released at a later date. The school district notes that the River Hawks nickname and imagery embody shared values and a spirit of resilience that characterizes the Owego Apalachin community.
The students and faculty at the O-A School district, along with the community are excited for the new imagery.
