Find way to honor both schools in reconfiguration

Have you heard of the Soldotna High School/Skyview High School reconfiguration plan? Supposedly they are going to combine them back at the SoHi 10-12 building. Possibly the 9th at the Romig building and 7-8 at the Skyview building. The part that bugs me is that they are going to get rid of the SoHi and Skyview mascots and colors. The students could possibly vote on new ones. I really wish they would just combine them. They could be the Panther Stars or the Star Panthers and blue, white, purple, black and silver. It would be just fine. They are “siblings” after all. I personally like the Star colors and mascot especially as it is connected with the state flag. Plus there are special murals and art. I would miss seeing them at my old high school but would be happy to see them add more.

Just combine the mascots and colors. It could be great! Or at least find a way to create a token tribute to each in the schools to acknowledge the history.
