Archer, Mountain View high schools unveil mascots

LAWRENCEVILLE - Gwinnett County Public Schools has announced the mascots of two new high schools opening this August: Archer Tigers and Mountain View Bears.

During the past month, principals Keith Chaney of Mountain View High and Charles "Buck" Buchanan of Archer High have led representatives of their new schools through a deliberation process, according to a news release.

Each school pulled together a committee, made up of students, parents and community members representing all levels and all clusters that would send students to the new schools, the news release states. Each committee reviewed a number of options, ranking their choices of mascots and colors.
