Gordon Tech is looking to change the name and mascot of the high school and as such change the tradition. We do NOT want this change.
As Alumni, parents, students, supporters, and even staff it is our responsibility to remember what the Gordon Tech name stands for. Our mission statement was instilled in all of us. It is our responsibility to make sure that the beliefs of faith, respect, excellence and service live on.
We want our future children to have the same opportunity to strive for excellence that we did! We cannot do that if they change the identity of a school that enriched so many lives. We will be truly heart broken. We are hoping that with this petition the administration and DePaul University will see how strong of an Alumni following we have. We hope that they see how many lives the school has impacted, how many people support the school, and how many people want to see it live on with its strong traditions of excellence and values. We want this petition to make them stop and reconsider the changes they are trying to enact. We want to be heard! So let's work together to help preserve an institution, a school, a second home to many of us that has impacted our lives in such a strong way. Let's come together to make our voices heard, let's come together to show them how these values and skills can make a difference the way they taught us, let's fight for our school, our tradition, our history, and our future! Let's fight for the orange and grey! It's a great day to be a Ram, and we want it to stay that way!Do not take away our tradition!
