(DRIGGS, ID) – Administrators in the Teton School District have voted to table discussions about changing their high school mascot for another year. In June, Superintendent Monte Woolstenhulme made an executive decision to do away with the Redskin mascot, which Sho-Ban tribal leaders consider offensive. The move prompted overwhelming opposition from Teton Valley residents, who felt the change dishonored decades of tradition. Woolstenhulme is urging the school board to appoint a committee to explore other options in the meantime.
