WESH: A local high school and a major automaker have reached a deal over the Ram logo
Chrysler will allow Lake Mary High School to continue to use the trademark mascot -- for now.
Initially, the company wanted the district to tear up the gym floor and replace wresting mats and wrought iron benches by the end of the school year.
It would have cost the school $70,000 in all.
The automaker now said those logos can stay until wear and tear requires replacement.
Chrysler said it heard complaints from the public loud and clear.
"It's a win-win. Chrysler will get good publicity; hopefully the school system, especially Lake Mary High School, will save money," School Board attorney Ned Julian said.
The district passed the agreement Tuesday night.
The school will put up signs saying it's a proud partner of Chrysler.
Company representatives even plan to visit the school for a photo op.
