MYRTLE BEACH — Horry County Schools will roll out its new logo as the school year progresses, but it already can be seen on the district’s website, www.horrycountyschools.net.
The school board went through two rounds of balloting Monday night to narrow the field of design options and settled on the final design submitted by the HCS communications department, minus one detail, said Teal Harding, district spokeswoman.
The new design is in shades of blue and features the large HCS initials with the district’s name spelled out underneath. A wave goes across the bottom of the letters, symbolizing how water defines the county – from the ocean to rivers and the Intracoastal Waterway – but a star that was in the original design has been removed from the final logo.
The district’s former logo was in need of an overhaul after about 18 years of use, Harding said. The communications group worked for nine months on a design, making a number of modifications after input from staff, graphic arts students and all of the superintendent’s cabinet members before arriving at a final submission.
