Jacksonville School District’s Sesquicentennial Committee is closing in on a logo for next year’s 150th anniversary celebration.

Jacksonville Public School Foundation Executive Director Amy Albers says ten to twelve ideas were submitted to the committee, which will be reviewed at their next meeting.

“Since it is for the celebration, we really focused on the 150 years. Eventually the school district is probably going to work towards a new logo. I don’t know if it will come out of something submitted now or later on,” says Albers.

Albers says aspects from multiple logos could be used, depending on the marketing or print campaign.

“I really liked how some of them have used the ‘Rich History, Bright Future’. One of the designs has the older buildings mixed in with the newer buildings. You can go the way of technology. We go from what we were to what we have now in our classrooms. There are a lot of different ways you can go with it,” says Albers.

The 150th celebration bash will mark the inaugural Distinguished Alumni Award night, highlighting the accomplishments of past Crimsons.

The kickoff banquet is scheduled for November 11th, 2017 at Jacksonville Middle School.
