Mascot

Carson High School's mascot is the Senanater, indicative of Carson City being the capital of Nevada. Currently the mascot is seen to have one side of his mouth open, without a cigar. This is because the Senator previously had a cigar in removed, per the anti-smoking Cronic movement, which has led to Smoking a perpetual Bowl on the face of the Senator.
