June 29, 2021: Fly Raptors Fly: Board Approves New RHS and RMS Nickname
 
The School Board approved the students' selection of Raptors, the birds of prey, as the new nickname/logo for Radnor High School and Radnor Middle School by an 8-0 vote at its regular business meeting on June 29. The vote officially makes Raptors the nickname of RHS and RMS sports teams, as well as that of other groups that have traditionally used the RHS and RMS nickname. (Watch meeting). 
 
Prior and subsequent to the vote, public comment was heard from community members in attendance as well as comments submitted by email. Also prior to the vote, a presentation by administration highlighted the history of the rebranding project and the project's next steps, which include: working with the previously Board-approved branding firm to begin the logo design process; ordering select uniforms as identified in a June 15 Finance Committee meeting presentation; and continuing to address the instances of the past nickname and imagery through removal/replacement.
 
More information will be provided as the logo design process gets underway.
