Notable alumni[edit]

2010 Mascot Row[edit]

In the summer of 2010, Pastor Donald Crosby of Kingdom Builders Church of Jesus Christ started a petition to remove the demon mascot because he did not want his son (an incoming freshman) to be considered a "demon".[14] A counter "Pro-demon" petition was launched and had over 700 signatures in the first twenty-four hours.[15] The pastor and an estimated 30 protesters picketed the front of the high school on the first day of school (August 9, 2010). The pastor was arrested for not obtaining a picketing license and was released on bond.[16]

The mascot, which is not religious in nature, was originally adopted during World War II in honor of the 7th fighter squadron at Robins Air Force Base which earned its title "The Screamin' Demons" in the South Pacific.[14]
