New ESP Logo est. 2020
By Cecil Cahoon (NEA Organizer)
- The schoolhouse image has been updated with a three-dimensional effect. It emphasizes a central arrow pointing skyward to suggest motion, advancement, and continuous improvement.
(Additionally, the arrow hints at a prominent element of Escambia County’s official seal: the Blue Angels rising from the Pensacola Naval Air Station.)
- The schoolhouse is featured against a bright blue field, representing its location by the Gulf of Mexico. From behind the schoolhouse, seven rays of the sun point west, representing Escambia County’s position as the Sunshine State’s western most county, with one ray representing each of seven groups of education staff professionals.
- Over the eastern half of the blue field, “EST. 1989” reflects the founding of UEESP, when unionized groups of education staff professionals chose to unite and affiliate with FEA.
- All of these elements are presented inside a red band that repeats the color of the schoolhouse image, and that contains the full name of the union, without abbreviation.
