Guam - After three months of seeking an identity, Guam's newest high school, Tiyan High, is in its final stages of establishing the school's identity.

"My daughter and I were actually talking yesterday because she was asking about all the high school colors and so we walked through all of our five high schools and then she asked me about Tiyan and I said well you know really it is an exciting time as the school is the one that is going to be deciding its school colors its school mascot," said DEO superintendent Jon Fernandez.

One of the most important components of determining it's identity is choosing a mascot and after numerous hours of brainstorming, researching, presenting and writing about various mascots that fit the spirit and determination of a student of Tiyan High School.  "So in my previous visits I know the students tossed around different ideas for names and for colors and so my understanding is that tomorrow they will be giving me at least a presentation of where they're at and hopefully they are at a point where they are going to make that final decision as a Tiyan High School community," he added.

The choices have boiled down to five top mascot choices: the Typhoons, Titans, Chiefs, Guardians, Wolves and Tigers. Fernandez said, "And we will go out and really have them present at our sporting events and have their mascot join the rest of our five high schools and really start to build that school spirit and community spirit that I know is difficult when you have a new school but it is part of the exciting part of building that community so I am looking forward to hearing from the students."

The school's Associated Body of Students will hold presentations on each of the five potential school mascots and determine through a vote which of the five will become the identity of Tiyan High tomorrow afternoon.

And while we wait to see what the outcome will be you can chime in on our KUAM News Facebook page and share what mascot you think best suits Tiyan High.
