Tinley Park Central Middle School Principal Randy Fortin planned a “slight makeover” for the outside of the school’s building.
“Twister pride is everywhere. I felt it the moment I walked into Central,” Fortin, said. “It’s time that we shout it to the community.”
Intended as a statement of pride about how the Twisters feel about their school, a cartoon-like mascot was emblazoned on the north side wall, depicting a tornado that has blasted through the brick and mortar building.
The commissioned image will stay true to the current mascot depiction of a tornado, he said.
“It will not just reflect our school pride, but our power as CMS Twisters. It will definitely make a statement, and those who see it will most definitely remember it,” Fortin said.
