Meet Your New “Neigh”Bor: The Maverick, Lone Star College-Montgomery’s Official Mascot

Lone Star College-Montgomery fans, it’s time to saddle-up and put your hoof to the pavement—the new, official mascot for LSC-Montgomery is the Mavericks!
 
Students, staff, and faculty voted on the new mascot last month, after the college’s original mascot—the Fighting Squirrel—officially retired.
 
“The Maverick always stands tall and confident, representing strength, stick-to-itiveness, and character,” said Dr. Austin A. Lane, president of LSC-Montgomery. “We hope the new mascot will instill those same traits in our students and bring a new sense of LSC-Montgomery pride to campus.”
 
Unbridled and unrestrained, the mascot made its debut this past weekend at the college’s community-wide 15th anniversary celebration held at Market Street in The Woodlands. More than 1,500 people showed up for the celebration, including professors, current and former students, parents, and community leaders.
 
Now that the mascot has been revealed, the name for the college’s mascot will be determined via suggestions from students, staff, faculty, and community members taking place over the next few weeks. If you would like to submit a name for consideration, please visit www.LoneStar.edu/Montgomery-Maverick by Friday, November 12.
