MARQUETTE, Mich. (WJMN) — A survey is now available to submit your ideas for the next mascot of the Marquette Senior High School. The survey is open until Nov. 17.

The school board has set a few guidelines for the new nickname, including:

  • it should pay tribute to a unique aspect of the community
  • it should not reference any protected class (i.e. any race, religion, gender, etc.)
  • it should be able to apply to both men’s and women’s teams

A link to the survey has been posted on the MAPS Facebook page, but submissions will also be accepted by email at, and by letter addressed to the school board and sent to 1201 West Fair Avenue.

Earlier this month, the board discussed a multi-step process where the board will take popular submissions and issue them in a list on another survey. The board will then use the results to guide their selection of the next mascot.
