G-E-T Ready To Retire Redmen?
By a single vote, the school board decided to keep the Indian nickname and logo. But a year later, school officials may feel they now have the votes to retire that symbol. A proposal to drop the Redmen nickname and mascot comes before the G-E-T board again tomorrow night. And the meeting agenda also includes discussion of a timeline for choosing a new nickname. The plans for a change come just a week after Governor Doyle signed a law putting more pressure on schools to give up racial nicknames.
