Chief Mascot Info
On October 5-7, 2022, current Chamberlain students were given three choices for a new school moniker. These three mascots were taken from the alumni/student survey given in August 2022, and the name Chief was not considered, even without Native American imagery.
Each student was allowed one vote and the final mascot, The Storm, was announced on Monday, October 10, 2022.
Students, Staff and Alumni,
Chamberlain High School is interested in your thoughtful feedback about the naming of our new mascot. Please take the time to answer the six open-ended questions by using the link below.
The survey will be closed on September 2, 2022.
The data will be compiled by a consultant who will help the committee, comprised of students, staff, and alumni narrow down the options and eventually create artwork for the proposed mascots.
The students, per school board policy, will vote on the proposed mascot choices the first week of October. Thank you for your valuable input in advance.
Jake Russell, Principal
Chamberlain High School
On June 21, 2022, the Hillsborough County School Board voted 5-1 to remove the Native American imagery from Chamberlain High School.
The 2022-23 students have been tasked with creating a new mascot for the school in the Fall of 2022.
Based on a survey given to students, alumni, and the community in August/September 2022, seven mascot names will be put on a ballot and the current student population will vote on a new mascot name at an October 5, 2022 assembly. On October 18, the new name will be presented to the Hillsborough County School Board for final approval.
