Helping Raise Money and School Spirit for Myers-Wilkins

Helping Raise Money and School Spirit for Myers-Wilkins

The Leadership Duluth Class of 2017 is proud to partner with Myers-Wilkins Elementary School to help ignite students' sense of school spirit.

Myers-Wilkins Elementary School serves a particularly low income segment of our community where the free or reduced lunch rate, an indicator of low/moderate family income, is 80%.  Many homeless families reside in shelters in or near the Hillside and their children attend Myers-Wilkins.  

After meeting with Myers-Wilkins principal Elisa Maldonado, Leadership Duluth identified a need for students to have a greater sense of pride and attachment to their school, and to the school mascot.  

The team then reached out to local artist Mike Smisek of SEK Design to create a brand new logo for the Myers-Wilkins Wolves.  Smisek created three versions of the logo and students will vote for their favorite design.

Through an online campaign, the group hopes to raise $5,000 to commission a painting of the new wolf logo in the entrance of the school, and to purchase logo t-shirts for each of the students.  

Donations can be made online at:

No amount is too small. Cash or check donations may also be made to the "Leadership Duluth Myers-Wilkins Logo" fund at all Members Cooperative Credit Unions.
