Public hearing held on Hawkeye closing
NF approves school name, mascot
After many discussions and input by students and community members, the North Fayette school board on Monday voted unanimously to adopt the name North Fayette Valley as the name for the secondary programs involved in the whole-grade sharing agreement. Board members also adopted the TigerHawk as the official mascot, but school colors were tabled pending a work session with Valley last night (Tuesday, Feb. 19).
The purpose of Monday’s public hearing on closing the Hawkeye school building was to inform the public on how the proposed decision was reached, and comments were taken by the public.
“In comparing the size of the Hawkeye and Fayette buildings, the Facilities Committee felt Fayette was a better fit for fifth- and sixth-grade students. We would continue to use the gym there, regardless of the classrooms being used or not,” said Superintendent Duane Willhite.
