Willie the Wildcat
Several years ago a new mascot was adopted at Kernersville Elementary. Students voted for their favorite character and the wildcat was chosen hands down. Each class was then asked to submit a name for the newly selected mascot and Willie was selected in honor of a highly respected assistant principal that served at KES for many years - Willie Richardson.Willie is an excellent representative of good character and as Wildcats, KES students show respect, responsibility and caring. Once a quarter we have a pep rally and Willie is always there to get the students pumped up about good character.
