The Alcorn School District has a new identity.

Superintendent Larry B. Mitchell introduced the district's new logo and branding identity to Board of Education members earlier this week.

The logo was designed by Amos McFall and will grace school district emails, website, letterhead and more. The design features the outline of an apple.

Mitchell also had a large lighted sign featuring the new logo constructed to hang in the district office's board room.

"The new sign is something we have about $100 involved in," Mitchell said board members. "I sent the logo to Mr. Jesse Potts at the career center and he made the sign with his classroom's plasma cutter. I'm really proud of the finished product - it's something I've wanted us to have in here (board room) for a long time."

Tim Bradley did the sign's frame and mounting work said Mitchell.

In other school board news, Mitchell said a remodeling project has began at the Alcorn Central band hall.

"We plan to move offices and storage rooms from the middle of the building and the edge of the building. This will open up the building more to be completely utilized," he said.

The band hall will also get new walls and ceiling tiles. The roof was replaced earlier this year.

Mitchell said bids are now being accepted for classroom additions at Alcorn Central and Kossuth.

A special called meeting will be held June 25 at 5 p.m. for bid opening and recommendations.
