Press Release - HONONEGAH COMMUNITY HIGH SCHOOL HONORS SCHOOL BOARD MEMBERS 2018
Posted on 11/07/2018
HONONEGAH COMMUNITY HIGH SCHOOL HONORS SCHOOL BOARD MEMBERS Rockton, Ill. (November 13, 2018) – November 15, 2018, marks the tenth official statewide observance of School Board Members Day in Illinois. This annual event provides the opportunity to honor board members’ commitment and dedication to providing a local voice for our District’s educational decisions. When it comes to public service, school board members are some of the most selfless volunteers around. They are your neighbors, friends, co-workers and parents. They are also our advocates fighting for quality educational opportunities for every student. Board members craft a vision, mission, and develop goals that are expressed to them by community parents and residents. They take their role seriously and view their position as a way to create educational opportunities for every student. Over 6,000 board members in Illinois serve without the expectation of a paycheck. They are the advocates we have elected to provide our voice in public school systems. School board members of course attend many meetings, but those meeting represent just a fraction of the actual time that they devote to being an educational leader for their districts. They attend extracurricular events, participate in professional development opportunities to become better leaders, and work many hours to ensure students have access to educational resources they need to succeed. Their sacrifices may often be overlooked, but their work is of the greatest importance. School board members more than any other official must listen to the voices of their community to help formulate and support a vision for their district. Quality educational opportunities are a necessity of successful communities. High quality public schools drive the local economy and promote growth within the community. The leadership shown by board members impacts not only the school district but most importantly enhances the lives of every resident. Our thanks to the Hononegah Board of Education: David Kurlinkus, President Mary Lewis, Vice President Sandy Fordell, Secretary Diane LaForge Bob Geddeis Fred Hasse Scott Wallace  READ MORE... about Press Release - HONONEGAH COMMUNITY HIGH SCHOOL HONORS SCHOOL BOARD MEMBERS 2018

Press Release - Hononegah Community High School District Rebrands
Posted on 09/10/2018
Hononegah Community High School District Rebrands - Rockton, IL – Hononegah Community High School District has undergone a rebrand with a new visual identity. The district, students, parents, and the community can expect to see the new images on all new apparel, uniforms, and materials. After a long research period, and in cooperation with RyCOM Creative Corp., a marketing & design firm in Rockton, HCHS logos have a new crisp, clean, and strong look. HCHS has a proud history as the Hononegah Indians, and their new images reflect this pride. Over the years there have been many versions of the Indian head, spear, and other logos, but with the new branding, it will evident what is or is not truly Hononegah. “We noticed a lot of different versions of our logo floating around, some of which were actually not ours at all, but people were using them to show school spirit. We don’t want to use someone else’s protected artwork, so we hope that these new images will be used by everyone who loves Hononegah and wants to show their support,” says Dr. Kim Suedbeck, Assistant Superintendent. There is a new typographic logo that many people may have already noticed on some materials, and this logo will be on the new Fieldhouse as well. The newly designed Indian head and spear are both sharp and modern while still feeling historic. The spear head was combined with the traditional branded “H” to create a new school icon that everyone is loving. “We are honored to work with HCHS on this rebrand. As a designer and parent of Hononegah students, it’s something I take a lot of pride in. The spear and “H” logos were something I took extra special care on. They are used on hats, vehicles, shirts, uniforms, jackets by thousands of people. They had to be representative of Hononegah’s history while also modern enough to be relevant for decades. I am really happy with the final designs.” – Ryan Rydell, President of RyCOM Creative Corp. The HCHS Indian head remains a part of the school’s identity. Previous versions have looked hand drawn, cartoonish, or had too many colors to reproduce accurately. The new Indian head is crisp and clean while keeping the historic look of the traditional Indian in his head dress. For anyone looking to use the new images, you can find a style guide on the district’s website Hononegah.org. The guide outlines the logos, colors, and other important usage details.  READ MORE... about Press Release - Hononegah Community High School District Rebrands
