a big fat thanks for a successful 5k!
In case you missed it, the Coyote 5K Classic was a huge success. A big fat shout out to the awesome 5K committee and all of the volunteers, runners, students and community members who participated!
Our new mascot, the Shelton Coyote, made his DEBUT at the 5K last weekend. We look forward to seeing our Coyote at many Shelton events in the future. A special thanks to Mike Mischel for donning the suit!
Students will have a chance to NAME OUR NEW MASCOT - there will be a box in the library where they can submit their entries.
