    • Wildcats (navy blue, silver and white)
    The vote is the final step in a process that began six weeks after Ilion and Mohawk voters approved the school merger on Feb. 12.
    A School Identity Transition Team made up of 15 students from the two schools brainstormed names for the new district. Those names were put before their grades 4-11 classmates for a vote on April 24. The students chose the name Central Valley.
    The team reconvened to develop a list of possible colors and mascots for another student vote.
    Working with Mohawk graduate Hal Hefner, a graphic artist in Los Angeles, the team narrowed its choices. Hefner took those ideas and presented his proposed designs back to the team via a teleconference on May 7.
    Color posters showing the choices are in each of the schools in advance of the vote.
