Sully

SULLY

Sully the Seal is the mascot of Garrison School.

Sully is named after John Sullivan, a General during the Revolutionary War. Sullivan lived in the seacoast area of New Hampshire.  Perhaps you have traveled over the General Sullivan Bridge that spans Little Bay.

As you can tell by Sully's rounded head and sleek body, Sully is a harbor seal. Harbor seals are frequently found along the New Hampshire coast, not far from Dover!
