Spartans, Griffins & Gators get ready to welcome a new mascot — the Hurricanes

ASCENSION PARISH — There’s a new mascot getting ready to ascend on Ascension Parish — the Prairieville High School Hurricanes.

Ascension Parish Schools unveiled two new logos for the soon-to-open Prairieville High School. The custom-designed logos include a primary school logo and a secondary mascot logo, both featuring a unique hurricane design, according to the school district.

Despite some delays and setbacks, the $69.5 million Prairieville High is now on track to open its doors for the 2024-2025 school year. Construction is currently underway near Prairieville Primary. Once completed, PVPS, PVMS and PVHS will all be situated within the same area, nestled between three main thoroughfares of the Prairieville area: Hwy. 42, Airline Hwy., and Hwy. 44.

“Typically, logos are developed with the school principal but in order to incorporate branding into the design and construction of the new school the district moved forward under the leadership of the Director of Secondary Schools Carli Francois, Supervisor of Planning and Construction Jeff Parent, and Public Information Officer Jackie Tisdell,” the district announced. “Further branding for the school including a school seal will be finalized after a principal is hired.”

Torch Creative out of Dallas created the custom logos. The company specialized in athletic logos and has worked with universities like LSU, Southeastern Louisiana University, Texas A&M, Michigan State, Rice, Ohio State as well as companies like Disney and Lucasfilm.

With construction underway on the new high school, The Ascension Parish School Board says they are working on developing new feeder system attendance zones. The district says they are planning to complete a survey in May with public meetings tentatively set for June. The goal is to finalize attendance zones by December 2023.
