The Scott County Board of Education approved the cougar mascot and school colors of maroon and white with black and silver accents at its meeting on March 8, 2018.
The perceptive and agile cat is known for its tawny brown coat and long tail. It can jump 20 feet from ground to tree in a single leap.
The Creekside Cougar will officially be unveiled at the groundbreaking for the school this spring. Creekside will be located off East Main Street in Georgetown and will open in August 2019.
