CSA New Tech has a new mascot

Nearly every high school has a mascot and a nickname — and Columbus Signature Academy New Tech has joined in.

CSA New Tech students who attend the high school that offers a curriculum of real-world problem-solving, opportunities to work with technology and to earn college credit will now have their own official mascot and moniker — The Dragons, joining the Columbus East High School Olympians and the Columbus North High School Bull Dogs.

The process of selecting a mascot involved collaboration between students, staff and the administration. Two of the students on the mascot committee were seniors Rebecca Moore and Emma Edwards. Both have been in the CSA program since kindergarten.

“So CSA’s really been part of our identity, but we felt like growing up, especially once we reached high school, that CSA didn’t have an identity for us,” Rebecca said. “… I wanted a mascot just because I feel like it’s a big part of the identity of the school that brings you all together and really makes it not just a school but a community.”
