Appomattox High Accepting Submissions For New Logo

Appomattox Co., VA - Appomattox County High School is accepting submissions for their new logo.

The school is phasing out their current "A Block" logo, thanks to a cease-and-desist letter from the University of Arizona, who claims that the Raiders "A" is too similar to that of the Arizona Wildcats.

Submissions are being accepted from the public for new designs. According to Assistant Principal and Athletic Director Chris Dodge, several submissions have already been received, including some from current and future students. Dodge said that "An 8th grader from down at the middle school decided he wanted to design one...did it on his computer, and submitted it via email."

In an agreement reached between both schools, Appomattox will phase out their "A" over the next several years, and stop selling merchandise with the old logo on it.
