The iconic symbol of the El Cajon Valley Braves is the Brave symbol and mascot. The Brave was donated by the Class of 1960 and greets students and staff each day as it stands in the Quad. Over the years the condition of the Brave has deteriorated due it’s exposure to the elements of nature and is now in serious need of repair. Given its age, craftsmanship and fine detail either replacing or restoring the Brave will require substantial financial investment. A specialist will need to be hired to evaluate the Brave’s condition and to identify the measures required to restore, relocate and/or replace the Brave. Initial funding will be used to determine the future of the Brave, with long term funding used to effect the restoration.
