Williston’s best friend and his unofficial mascot

Man’s best friend is also Williston’s best friend

We all know what a mascot is. Your alma mater might have had a guy in a tiger costume representing your school, or you actually walked out onto the field with some kind of animal on a leash, mimicking your team’s name. In Williston, ND, there’s an “unofficial mascot” that has taken over the school and really the whole town.

Hagan Elementary School in Williston, North Dakota has a hawk as its mascot

The true mascot of Hagan Elementary School is the “Hagan Hawk”, hovering high above the school grounds. Their “unofficial” representative is a furry, friendly friend to everyone at school. It all started when the principal decided to bring in a visitor. According to kfyrtv.com “She brought a lot of joy into my life,” said Darla Ratzak, director. Ratzak decided to bring her Bernedoodle named Daiquiri to school when she was just an eight-week-old puppy.

Daiquiri came into every person’s life at the perfect time

After the pandemic hit hard, people were looking for something positive to reach out and “touch”, what a perfect way for Daiquiri to make such a great impression on the kids at the entire faculty. Besides being such a good friend to everyone, it turns out that she’s also a model figure, as many young children have drawn pictures of her, which end up proudly hanging in the principal’s office. So if you pass Hagan Elementary, be sure to give Daiquiri a good old wave.
