And He's Off .... The Charlie Project is complete.  Charlie had his big reveal party October 30th and those in attendance were able to get their photos taken with the new Charlie.  

Over eighteen months, alumni of Charles H Milby High School spearheaded by our own Johnny Nelson '65 with the help of many supportive Buffaloes, raised funds, spent countless hours researching sources to create a life-size fiberglass Charlie Buffalo (American Bison) mascot to share with current students.  “Charlie” made his debut at Milby's Homecoming against Furr at Barnett Stadium Saturday, November 5, 2016.  Each participant of this project was acknowledged on a plaque.  Click here to view.
