Green Mountain Unified School District votes to lose ‘Chieftains’ name
CHESTER, Vt. (WCAX) - Effective immediately, the Green Mountain Unified School District has ditched the “Chieftains” mascot.
In a 7-2 vote during a meeting Thursday, the southern Vermont school district voted in favor of retiring the mascot name, which is the Chieftains name and Indian head logo.
The removal applies to any future activities the school endorses.
Back in October, leaders removed the Chieftains name logo from school grounds.
As for a new name, that decision is up in the air. One board member suggested following Rutland’s footsteps and calling themselves “Green Mountain.”
