NORCROSS -- Meadowcreek High School has plans for a big 25th anniversary celebration on Monday at the school.
Adrienne Wylie, an assistant principal at the school, said she's hoping that those invited to the event come out "to see how awesome Meadowcreek is."
"I want people to be able to come in and see that we've made an effort in giving people the opportunity to look back and see what Meadowcreek is all about," Wylie said.
With the help of other staff members and teachers at the school, Wylie created a committee for the 25th anniversary celebration.
"I wanted to make sure I got some good insights from the people who have been here for a while," she said. "Meadowcreek has changed so much. It's amazing the change that Meadowcreek has gone through."
Meadowcreek High School, which opened August 1986 to relieve overcrowding at Berkmar High School and Norcross High School, was named for the Meadows Family School and the Creek Indians, both of which were once located near the site.
The school's mascot is the Mustang. The school's colors are Carolina blue, navy and white. The colors and mascot were chosen in a vote by the first student body from a variety of choices.
Monday's event is scheduled for 6 p.m. in the school's theater. Meadowcreek High School is located at 4455 Steve Reynolds Blvd., Norcross.
