The Proud Home of the Mustangs

We are the proud Hallie Wells Mustangs! This mascot has special meaning to the school.  In 1981, Ms. Wells purchased the Hershell-Spillman Carousel (circa 1910-1915) which operated for many years at the Smithsonian Institute on the Mall in Washington, D.C.   

In her years of service in Washington DC, Ms. Wells noticed how much children enjoyed the carousel. It was a gathering spot and landmark on the National Mall. Therefore, she decided to purchase a carousel for the Ovid Hazen Wells Park in Clarksburg.  At the time of purchase, the carousel was placed in a temporary location in Wheaton Regional Park.  At the time, Montgomery County Parks noted that the carousel would be moved to Ovid Hazen Wells Park when there were, “sufficient number of park users.” 

To honor the carousel, Hallie Wells Middle School is proud to have the Mustang as our mascot.
