Hellbender Mascot Contest Winners - Kat Lillie and Yuridia Bautista 


We had an overwhelming response to the hellbender mascot naming contest.  We are pleased to introduce HERBIE the Hellbender.  There was a tie for the winning name: Kat Lillie and Yuridia Bautista both put forth the name selected by our judges.  Yuridia was unable to make the Feast Like a Hellbender event but she will soon be receiving her t-shirt in the mail. Kat Lillie was also unable to attend, but her mother (Nancy Lillie who is pictured below) was able to receive the award on her behalf.


Congratulations to both Kat and Yuridia!!
