The Meaning of “Voluntas”

Retail Ready Career Center’s school motto “Voluntas” (pronounced vol-lun-tās), means PURPOSE and WILL. PURPOSE drives clarity and focus. Without this sense of purpose, it is impossible to create anything of significance or impact change.

After purpose comes WILL. The will to forge new paths, overcome obstacles, persevere through self doubt, and the will to not listen to others that can’t or don’t see your vision.

Our Mascot, the Griffin

The school mascot is a Griffin! But what is a Griffin? A Griffin is a legendary creature with the body, tail, and back legs of a lion; the head and wings of an eagle; and an eagle’s talons as its front feet. Because the lion was traditionally considered the king of the beasts and the eagle the king of birds, the Griffin was thought to be an especially powerful and majestic creature. The Griffin was also thought of as king of all creatures.
