The purple, gray, yellow and white image was one of 12 entries submitted as part of a contest open to the Wauconda High community. It will be featured on stationery, shirts and displays during the centennial year, officials said.

Murphy's design was selected through an online voting process. About 500 students and employees participated.

A centennial committee approved the choice last week.

"I liked all of the entries, as I appreciated the enthusiasm to help us celebrate our centennial," Principal Dan Klett said in an email.

Wauconda High opened for the 1915-16 term on Slocum Lake Road, in what is now Wauconda Middle School, Klett said. The first graduating class received their diplomas in 1917.

The current campus at 555 N. Main St. was dedicated in 1962. Additions were made in 1976, 1999 and 2008.

The centennial committee is planning events for the special year. Klett is keeping details close to the vest for now. He did say a commemorative book highlighting the school's decade-by-decade history will be produced and sold to the public.

"We are very excited to celebrate our centennial year," Klett said. "We will use social media to help us keep everyone up to date on our celebration plans."

Klett also encouraged people to visit the school's website, d118.org/high, for information on centennial events.
