Carroll CC reveals Lynx mascot logo at celebration

Cheers of "unleash the Lynx! unleash the Lynx!" echoed through the Carroll Community College Cafe on Tuesday as students, faculty and staff waited with anticipation for banner to be unfurled. Student leaders Jasmine Sarabia and Spencer Koenig quickly untied ropes and unrolled the banner, revealing the college's new Lynx logo for the first time — to cheers and applause. The reveal came after the college chose the Lynx as its mascot in January 2018. Tuesday afternoon's unveiling was done as a part of the college's 25th anniversary celebrations. And for those in attendance, the pumped-up experience made the reveal even better. "I was really excited because we're such a small school, the fact that we're finally having a logo and sports teams is really exciting," Regan Hyde, a student in her second year studying history, said, adding, "They did such a dramatic reveal of it, I thought it was really cool." The mascot was chosen after a "campus-wide initiative to find a mascot that embodied the College's character," according to a news release from Carroll. The suggestion came from recent graduate Ryan Barron of Westminster. The uniforms for Carroll's inaugural sports teams will display the Lynx logo. In October 2017, the college announced the addition of intercollegiate sports.
