which represents our mascot the Bumblebee.
Boshears is part of the Tyler ISD continuum of services for students who have been identified as having a severe/profound disability. The bumblebee was chosen as our mascot due to the unexplained ability of the bumblebee to fly.
Scientists have often been intrigued by bumblebee’s ability to fly. The lab folks figured the insect held some secret of flight that might provide answers to questions about operation in space and aeronautics.
They asked themselves how such small wings could produce sufficient lift for such a relatively large and hairy torso. And how could a round body and flight position violating many principles of aerodynamics move so efficiently through the air? They felt there was much to be learned from the bumblebee.
These scientists set about studying the bumblebee to discover its flying secrets. They hypothesized, scrutinized, examined, dissected, measured, timed, filmed, observed, compared, quantified, thought about and debated the bumblebee. After weeks of study they came to one conclusion – bumblebees are not capable of flight.
But, no one has told the bumblebee. We believe this clearly describes our students, staff, and parents. Our goal is to Exceed Expectations, just like the bumblebee, every single day.
