Mt. Vernon High School
Colors: Old Gold and White
Fight song: Mt. Vernon Fight Song, an original composition written by former band director Stan Ricks around the time of the 1963 consolidation
What’s in a name? The Marauders moniker is keeping in the same plundering “family” as the nicknames of the schools that consolidated into Mt. Vernon High School in the early 1960s. The McCordsville Pirates and Fortville Demons eventually formed the Vernon Township Vikings and, in 1963, Vernon Township consolidated with the Mt. Comfort Buccaneers to become the present-day Mt. Vernon Marauders. These area elementary schools continue the swashbuckling tradition: Mt. Comfort Buccaneers, Fortville Vikings and McCordsville Pirates.
