Bradley Dragons Bumper Sticker

The Bradley Dragon mascot was drawn by Charles Leroy "Chesty" Guest in the 1930s.  The dragon was chosen because it had a long body and tail that would accommodate our moniker.


Only one other school in the United States has a dragon for its mascot and that is Collierville High School in Collierville, Tennessee where the mascot is known as "Blister the Dragon."  St. George's Independent School (est. 1959) in Middletown, Rhode Island originally used the dragon, but changed its mascot to the Gryphon, to distinguish it from Collierville where they opened a new school in 2001.

The Bradley school circulated a free newsletter called the Bradley Dragon.  The high school students typed it and sent the cover to the grade school children to color it.
