The icon: It's everywhere



Hillsborough County's culture icon, showing the district's eight core values, took center stage in a Martin Luther King, Jr. Day parade float constructed, in part, by students at Riverhills Elementary School.

These photos, which can be viewed on the district news site, show students working with the district's maintenance department on the float's components. The school cultural icon an octagon with labels that include "service learning" and "student leadership," has been Superintendent Jeff Eakins' go-to visual during speaking engagements since he began his term on July 1.

Riverhills, in Temple Terrace, is a magnet school for international studies.
