Name the Golden Eagles Mascot Contest

Arvee chosen as winning name!

 

Congratulations to Cristina Szterensus, the winner of our "Name the Mascot" contest! Cristina's submitted name, Arvee, emerged as the winner and was announced along with nine other finalists at halftime of the men's basketball game on February 5. The name is the initials R.V. for Rock Valley spelled out. Cristina felt Rock Valley should remain in the mascot's name in some way.
