Decades of Tampa‘s Chamberlain High School students identified themselves as Chiefs. Now, that’s changing, and the signs are coming down.
At Chamberlain High School, the sight of the iconic Chief logo that faced out to Busch Blvd. is a thing of the past. Workers removed the logo, along with the acknowledgement of the classes of 1958, 1959 and 1960 for that sign.
There are plans for the sign, and we’ll learn that in the upcoming weeks. It is in the hands of the Chamberlain High School Legacy Alliance. The CHSLA is planning a park for school’s heritage.
In a Facebook post by the CHS Legacy Alliance from June, it was expected the sign was going to be removed in late fall. However, today, this was what was in front of the school.
There will be a new mascot. It will be created through both students’ and alumni input.
According to a Facebook post by the Chamberlain High School Legacy Alliance, the change will be taken care of through a third party from Minneapolis. The consulting company has been handling these sort of changes nationwide.
