Teton High School in Driggs is looking for a new mascot. During the school district’s recent school board meeting, Superintendent Monte Woolstenhulme announced that he was directing the school to replace the Redskins with an image that is more politically correct. He says he will ask the high school administration to work with students, staff, alumni, parents, booster club and the community when school starts in fall to gather ideas on a new mascot. Woolstenhulme says, “People will be able to email, call – I’m sure we will be having some community meetings to listen to people and share ideas – so working with the high school administration will be the best way to share their ideas for a new mascot.” Woolstenhulme explains that honoring the Native American community teaches positive social behaviors among the students and is essential to students to learn to recognize others for their character, not the color of their skin. Woolstenhulme says there is a national conversation now about this issue and as the school district looks at its efforts to reinforce respect of others the district determined it was time to make sure the mascot is an example of respect for others. Woolstenhulme says the call for the change is still very recent, but initial response from the community has been mostly well-received, but he is ready to listen to those who have differing ideas and concerns about the matter. Teton High School has had the Redskins mascot since it was opened in 1910.
