LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - The Lansing School District has revealed its new J-Dubbs mascot for J.W. Sexton High School Wednesday.

The new dog mascot was voted on after months of input from students, staff and the community. The Sexton logo will remain a red block S.

“I’m really proud of our students and the process we went through to select the new mascot,” said Sexton principal Dan Boggan III. “Mascots and logos for any organization evolve over time, and we were way past due for a change for many reasons at Sexton.”
