The new look of the Cardinal head (left) that District 206 experimented changing to with the opening of the new Alexandria Area High School this coming fall has been scrapped after public criticism of the look. The district will stick with a look that is very similar to the traditional Cardinal head (right).

School District 206 is listening to the community and sticking with the traditional look of the Alexandria Cardinal mascot after hearing criticism about a new logo that was introduced on the Echo Press website last Thursday.


“It’s too drastic of a change and the feedback is people don’t like it,” District 206 Superintendent Rick Lahn said by phone on Monday morning. “We didn’t get any positive feedback on that, and we got a lot of negative feedback. We’re listening.”
