The mascot and colors selection process for Johnson High School was completely student driven. The Hays CISD Board and Superintendent Student Advisory Panel developed the framework for the selection process and present a recommendation to the Board of Trustees for approval in April 2018. The recommendation was "jaguars" for the mascot, and black and gold for the school colors. On April 23, 2018, the Hays CISD School Board officially voted to name the mascot as the "jaguars" and name the colors as black & gold.
