A letter jacket is traditionally worn to represent a student's school, team and/or competitive or leadership extra-curricular activity. At Meridian, a letter jacket includes the red and black jacket itself and the Meridian "M" patch on the front left (see image). The "M" may or may not include an earned insert (see Tennis insert in image). To earn an insert, the student must have lettered in that Meridian extra-curricular activity (see lettering requirements here.). The IB insert is the only exception. All Meridian students who are eligible to purchase a letter jacket and/or who have lettered in extra-curricular activity may choose the IB insert (see image below).
