Two districts agreed to become one 25 years ago, but all these years later, they still haven't agreed on a logo. Broadalbin-Perth Central School District uses 15 different logos for different things. But as YNN's Maria Valvanis explains, the community is working to change that.
FULTON COUNTY, N.Y. – One hundred ideas submitted by the community will be dwindled down to one.
A ten person committee made up of staff, parents and students is trying to create the first official logo of the Broadalbin-Perth Central School District.
Michele Kelley said, "For the past 25 years, we haven't had an official logo. We've had a lot of different logos."
Fifteen different ones to be exact. Each used for different things, making it hard for someone on the outside to easily identify the school.
"It's a serious need that I want to help fill," said Jon Aery.
Ryan Sharland said, "So far, we've brainstormed words that have to go with our district, like warmth and pride."
The committee will narrow the logo submissions from the community down to three and from there, create one single template.
"Looking for something really strong and visually gripping to represent our school," said Aery.
"We wanted this to be a really inclusive project. The school district is not just teachers. It's not just students. It's parents. It's alumni," said Kelley.
The final product will be presented to the Board of Education for approval in January and after that, slowly incorporated into anything and everything school related.
"It's very cool and it will be nice to come back in a couple years and see everything we worked on all over the district," said Sharland.
Helping to bring the entire community together.
