Let us go back to NW Oklahoma, Alva High, in Alva, Oklahoma for a few moments with memories of the "buggettes," a girls cheering squad for the Alva High "Goldbugs." You can view the Alva Goldbug Reunions 2000 & mascot here AHS Goldbug Reunion 2000 - I know there are other schools with the Goldbug mascots. There are the Kensington High School Goldbugs in Kansas. Also, I hear that there are some Goldbug mascots in Fowler, Kansas and a school in California. I am told that this information was printed in a 'National Administrators Publication.' As another Alva Goldbug says, "It would be interesting to compare mascots and stories about how each school originated the idea."
If you have a Goldbug mascot and story, please share your origin with us in the 'Comments' section under this blog. If you have a photo of your Goldbug mascot, save it to a jpg file and Email Linda - firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks ahead of time for contributing to the OkieLegacySoapbos.
