MINOT, N.D. – Minot North High School Is the name of the new facility coming to north hill in the Magic City. In the latest of three public surveys more than 50% chose the name for the school. Sentinel was chosen as the mascot with 30% support.

They removed previous options, such as missile, because it is phallic, and a destructive weapon. “My biggest concern is that we’re not making it something that would be considered a tool of destruction. With all that’s been going on in our country, and all that’s been going on in other country’s for years,” said Pam Schumaker, resident.

The board said they intended sentinel as someone who watches and guards, and are considering mascot designs of a watchmen with a lantern.

It is also the name of the military’s next generation of nuclear missile.

The new school is slated to open fall 2024.
