MOUNTAIN HOUSE — When it comes to Mountain House High School’s identifying logo, the general public will make the final decision based on a survey on the school’s Facebook page.

There are four Mustangs logo options listed on the page — one with a full horse body and three versions of a horse head with lettering variations.

Kristie Watson, a retired Mountain House graphic artist, created all of the logos, according to Principal Ben Fobert.

The four options were posted on the school’s Facebook page on Aug. 28.

“We wanted to give them choices,” Fobert said.

Within two days, the logo survey had received 125 responses, and on Wednesday, Sept. 4, that number had grown to more than 150, he said.

Leading the votes by a small margin was version D, which is a horse head with MHHS on the neck.

During the Lammersville Unified School District Governing Board

meeting on Wednesday,

Sept. 4, the board was given samples of the two top vote getters, options B and D. Some of the board members spoke in favor of the odds-on favorite, D.

“I like the top one,” said Sharon Lampel, the board clerk, referring to D. “The bottom looks like a weird letter C.”

“The top (version) got a few more votes,” Fobert told the board about option D. “It looks a little stronger. It also looks cooler on a (football) helmet.”

The winning logo will be announced on the school’s Facebook page, Fobert said.
