School Board to Review Manhattan High School's Mascot Name

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — The fate of Manhattan High School's Indians mascot could be decided this fall. The Manhattan Mercury reports that six of the seven Manhattan-Ogden school board members said at a meeting Wednesday that they were willing to discuss changing the mascot in the fall when incoming Superintendent Marvin Wade can weigh in on the issue. Curt Herrman was the only board member against the conversation. In early February, board president Marcia Rozell said she wasn't planning to take up complaints about the mascot. For the second school board meeting in a row, a Manhattan resident spoke in favor of changing the high school's Indians moniker Wednesday. Joe Sutliff Sanders says he believes keeping the mascot contradicts the school district's mission to "help children learn well."
