BLOUNTVILLE — For the first time in its history, Northeast State Community College will pick a mascot.


According to a media release, the school is seeking “a visual symbol that demonstrates college pride and provides a memorable, unique and appropriate public identity.”


Northeast State is surveying, students, alumni, faculty, staff and community members for suggestions. The mascot may take the form of a logo, person, live animal, inanimate object or a costumed character.


According to Northeast State officials, the mascot’s job description is still evolving. The news release stated that the mascot “will most likely serve as a goodwill ambassador and/or as a marketing tool that will embody the spirit of Northeast State.”


“It’s the college’s hope that through a mascot, every student, alum, friend and supporter will cultivate a strengthened connection to Northeast State’s mission, values and commitment to building a college-going culture.”
