Scot Pride is something everyone experiences when walking through the doors of this institution. The unique name of “MCC Scots” reflects the College namesake, William McHenry, who was born of Scottish/Irish ancestry and served as a pioneer, senator, soldier, and was elected to the first Illinois House of Representatives. McHenry’s various roles reflected all elements that define a strong college, including its athletics program: tough, strong, dignified, confident, and proud.


To personify the traits that make us the “MCC Scots,” we introduce a mascot that is also tough, strong, dignified, confident, and proud. This lion is one of Scotland’s official symbols, often seen in royal crests and flags (Royal Standard of Scotland). It is used as a common emblem in the Royal Arms of Scotland and all heraldry (armor), traditionally symbolizing bravery, strength, and nobility, as the lion is the king of beasts.
