Following the closure of SCI&TS, Sarnia’s new combined high school has chosen its mascot and colours.
The Urban Decay will represent Great Lakes Secondary School in various shades of brown, red and grey.
“Urban Decay affects all of us, its tendrils reaching into our lives little by little, revealing the inevitability of our own folly over our lives as high school students,” said May Branding, co-chair of the identity committee that developed the name and colours.
The mascot, named “Copper,” has special meaning to the students and community.
“We’re reminded that we need to find solace in each other until the end of our days, and the copper pipe mascot represents the value we can find in the ruins all around us, in each other… that it can feed us just long enough that we may become adults, university applicants and living echoes of an economy that ate itself alive long before our time. ”
