First Bengal Mascot

Greensboro Day School First Bengal Mascot

The October 8 edition of the Bengal Lancer described the process by which the mascot was chosen. A committee that included John Jester, Coach Edwards, Headmaster Welles and students, had decided on an animal (although some favored Blue Devils and one parent was reported to have suggested the Lafayette Escadrilles). Welles had hoped to use an animal native to North Carolina, but Billy Cone’s suggestion of the Tiger led the committee to choose the Bengal, for whom we cheer today!
