The students spoke, and the school board vetoed: One high school opening in Utah won't be calling themselves the "Cougars."
Students across the Canyons school district voted to select the "Cougars" as the new mascot for Corner Canyon High School -- slated to open in fall 2013.

The term "cougar" is often informally used to reference an older woman seeking a sexual or romantic relationship with a significantly younger man.
