“Carry On” were the last words spoken by Zedo Ishikawa, a beloved senior and high school football star who died in a tragic accident. Before he died he told his father to tell the coach and the boys to “carry on” with the upcoming football game. Those words soon became the school motto and a song was written that captured the feeling of the traditions and honor felt by Mesa high students. This song still motivates and inspires Mesa High students today. In 1987 Mesa Public Schools opened Ishikawa Elementary School in honor of the Mesa High student.
