Time to name our very own tiger


TAS's Tiger Mascot
For years, the TAS tiger mascot has been participating in various school events, ranging from spirit week to all sorts of sports events. Yet, he still does not have a name.
Juliana C. (12), the Student Government Field Day Activities Officer, says that “Stu Gov is planning to incorporate the mascot more to try to promote our school spirit.”
The tiger mascot serves to add excitement and boost school spirits during school events such as field day and spirit week. “He’s a part of the event. Last year, he went to our games and danced during spirit week,” says Juliana.
His true identity, the person inside the suit, remains as a secret too add to the mystery. “It’s a secret. We want to keep the magic of the tiger,” says Juliana.
But our tiger remains nameless. And that’s where you come in. StuGov has announced an exciting competition to give our Tiger the name that he deserves.
The contest is open to every level of the school, because he belongs to all of us. “We’re hoping to make this an entire school effort,” says Juliana.
Prospective names must be submitted to each grade’s Class Gov, who will then submit the top few to Stu Gov. After the top ten are selected, “Stu Gov will try to find a way to incorporate the Legacy Commons iPads into the voting process,” says Juliana.
Hopefully, at the end of this process, our school’s famous tiger will have its very own name.
