The "Colonial" is our official school emblem. It is symbolic of Shrewsbury's heritage through
the famous life of a colonial named Artemas Ward, and was designed for us by the late, well-known Worcester sports cartoonist
Al Banks. In the late 1950s, when the Shrewsbury High School at Oak Street was opened, the "Colonial"
was incorporated in the new school seal. This seal was put to use immediately by being placed on class rings.
