CORPUS CHRISTI - The Corpus Christi Independent School District chose Veterans Day to approve the mascot for the district's new Veterans Memorial High School.
District trustees voted Monday night. The mascot of the new high school will be the "Eagles." The other contender was the "Patriots."
CCISD allowed the community to vote on the new mascot. The district revealed the logo for Veterans Memorial High School last month.
The new Southside campus on Cimarron near Lipes is expected to open in August 2015.
