Biltmore Preparatory Academy

The mascot at Biltmore Preparatory Academy is the same as the Auburn Tigers, but students were Oregon Ducks fans for the BCS National Championship football game.


First- and third-grade students at the school were surprised by the Oregon Duck mascot Puddles and team cheerleaders after a letter-writing campaign to the University of Oregon.

Lara Eklund is an Oregon alumnus, and Kim Swedbery is native to Oregon. The Biltmore Prep teachers started the letter-writing campaign in hopes of finding a fun writing exercise for students while exposing them to college experiences.

After a performance by the Oregon cheerleaders and Puddles, Oregon alumni gave a speech to the students about setting high goals and working hard to reach them.
