Brown High School - home of the brown bears

Because it is the capital of Hawaii, Honolulu is a very great place to have our high school. It has a lot of interesting history and culture. Honolulu means "sheltered bay" and is located on the Southeast island of Oahu. Honolulu was first settled by the original Polynesian migrants. Captain William Brown from England was the first foreigner to sail into what is now the Honolulu Harbor. After his discovery, many other foreign ships followed, making Honolulu's port a great place to transfer things to and from North America and Asia. Ever since Captain Brown's discovery of Honolulu, the island has millions of visitors and has become a very popular tourism place. The growing economy of Honolulu eventually made Honolulu a very rich, modern city with numerous high-rise buildings. For more information about the discovery of Honolulu and the history of the islands you can go to!

Since Captain Brown was the first to sail to Honolulu, I think that our school should be dedicated to him. It should be named Brown High School and the mascot would be a brown bear. The name would symbolize the interesting history of Honolulu and also be an appropriate mascot that everyone could appreciate. The bear would be a great mascot because it is intimidating and strong! It would not be offensive and it would be easy to make clothing and other school spirit wear!! It would also be a great idea for a mascot because it is not the typical Hawaii high school mascot. It will be unique because the other schools will be water animals rather than forest and land animals like a BEAR!

By naming the high school Brown High School, it would honor Captain William Brown who was the first to sail to Honolulu. It is a simple name which is great for a high school. It would tell a story of the city's history and be a great mascot!
