The testimony of Banks High School student Coryn Nelson before the Oregon Board of Education about banning Native American mascots has ignited quite a stir across the state. Nelson’s testimony has even received TV coverage. Lars Larson’s posting on his face book page of our MOOCountyNews article (“15 Year Old Banks High Student Schools Oregon Board of Education”) with Coryn’s complete testimony brought an amazing number of hits(Thanks Lars).
To all of you folks who are supporters of the Warrenton Warriors, your mascot’s days may be coming to an end if the State Board of Education has its way. That unique statue of the Warrenton Warrior, actually fashioned by Warrenton students years ago, may be headed to the politically correct scrap pile.
