USMA: New logo highlights sports rebrand PDF Print E-mail
WEST POINT "Black Knights" stays, but the Black Knight goes when it comes to Army athletics.

Make that "Army West Point" athletics.

Both moves are part of a rebranding effort announced here Monday night at Eisenhower Hall in a ceremony that was part press conference, part laser show (complete with fog machines) and part "Project Runway," with representatives from some of the school's athletic teams modeling new uniforms.

Before the uniforms came the big reveal: The "Athena Shield," which will take the place of the sword-wielding Black Knight-behind-the-"A" logo that still adorned Michie Stadium's midfield stripe as of Monday night.

It features a helmet, sword and star on a shield background in traditional gold and black colors, a design meant to be "evocative" of the history of West Point, said Col. Ty Seidule, head of West Point's history department, who worked closely with Nike marketing and design staffers during the 18-month rebranding process.

WP-ORG is a treasure.  Over 19 years, what started out as a single message posted to a rudimentary online bulletin board has become a thriving online community of USMA graduates, academy parents, and special interest groups.  It is easy to quantify the good this organization has done.  Through its eulogy pages, WP-ORG has provided a place to preserve memories, express sorrow, and heal hearts.  Through its listservers, WP-ORG has made it possible to renew and strengthen friendships, solve problems, plan reunions, reassure cadet parents, and share thoughts.  Through its online registration and payment sites, WP-ORG has been instrumental in simplifying the planning of reunions for USMA Classes, All Academy Balls for parent clubs (Army, Navy and Air Force), Founders Day for societies, and many other events.  WP-ORG has hosted and enthusiastically supported Ring Recovery, a program to recover lost and stolen Academy rings and return them to their owners, since its inception.  

WP-ORG is yours - created and guided by you.  WP-ORG has always sought to do good.  WP-ORG has succeeded in so many ways.  Please help us continue...
