Lanier Poets

I loved it when my high school was named the Lanier Poets. How original, named after Macon native Sidney Lanier. Even loved the odd color combination of orange and green. Alas, by the time I matriculated the name had been charged to the generic Central Chargers. Green had been dropped as a color.

My old coach Tommy Seward posted this photo. A few other high schools were named after Lanier, as well as the lake northeast of Atlanta. Interestingly, a new high school nearby was named after the lake. They are called the Lanier Longhorns. 

Surely creativity and originality are dead.
