A dragon logo has been revealed for New Braunfels ISD's future second high school campus, Long Creek High School.

The framework

District officials hosted an event in the library of the future LCHS campus on Oct. 6 to share the logo reveal with students, staff and the community.

“Today, we mark the beginning of a new chapter in the history of Long Creek High School—a chapter filled with spirit, unity and the fierce determination of a Dragon,” Principal Angelia Watson said.

The construction of LCHS marks a historic precedent for the district, which has been operating with one high school—New Braunfels High School—for over 170 years.

“Today, we will begin creating traditions that will last a lifetime as we fuel our new legacy,” said Addie Beth Vaughn, a freshman student who will be in the first graduating class from LCHS in 2027.

The background

The NBISD board of trustees voted unanimously Dec. 12, 2022, in favor of the dragon as the mascot of LCHS.

The final version of the main logo has a symbolic creek running down the middle of the dragon’s body in the school's color, with a circle to enclose the design.

“We understand this dragon will become a symbol within our community representing Long Creek High School for generations to come,” Watson said. “A committee of staff and students worked long and hard to design a logo that we can all be proud of.”

According to district officials, a committee spent months choosing details of the design and settled on three versions of the dragon for future students of the campus to vote on.

“It was important to us that our students play an integral role and have ownership throughout the entirety of the selection process—from the colors to the mascot and finally to the design of the Dragon,” Watson said. “The dragon mascot was chosen to represent and embody the spirit, courage and resilience that Long Creek High School strives to foster as a school community, and it will be a beacon of inspiration, encouraging us to soar to new heights and achieve greatness.”

A groundbreaking ceremony for LCHS took place at what is the district’s Ninth Grade Center on March 23. The campus is slated to be complete in August 2024, in time to welcome students for the 2024-25 school year.

Quote of note

“The dragon will serve as a symbol of adaptability and growth,” Watson said. “Just as dragons transform and evolve, we, too, evolve as individuals and as a district. We will adapt to challenges, learn from experiences, and emerge stronger and wiser—ready to face the future of our new legacy with courage and strength.”
