Phoenix College Athletics Department Unveils New Logo, Center for Athletes
(PHOENIX, Ariz., March 9, 2012) ̶ A new Phoenix College athletics logo featuring a fierce-looking Bear was unveiled Friday, March 9, 2012 at the central Phoenix campus.
With coaches, players, college officials and students looking on, PC Athletics Director Samantha Ezell revealed the new logo, which was the result of several months of work by a PC committee.
“We wanted a Bear that looked more competitive and looked like it was protecting PC,” Ezell said.
At the same time, she publicly announced the opening of the Center for Athletic Victory and Education (CAVE), a new space for PC athletes and teams to study and participate in team activities.
Shachi Kale, a local graphic designer who developed the new look, was present at the unveiling ceremony, as was artist Kristine Kollasch, who hand painted the new logo on an outside wall of the CAVE.
In her opening remarks, Phoenix College President Dr. Anna Solley emphasized the school's scholar-athlete approach. “We focus not only on the skill set our athletes bring to the field or court but the skill set they get in the classroom as well.”
