"The History of Yohan"

Yohan, the school's mascot, was named after a fictional student whose name appeared on a study hall list for days.  His official name was Yohan Petrovich.  He was a figment of George Zupko's imagination and was developed in 1942.  Yohan's physique was developed by building bricks from the years he spent in the brickyards of Hobart.
