BOISE, ID — Boise High School could change its mascot as early as this fall.

The Idaho Statesman reports Boise High officials will present a plan to change the schools mascot from the "Braves" to the "Brave" at the next school board meeting on August 12th.

Boise High principal Robb Thompson said he wants to have the "Brave" nickname ready for the coming school year. However, the process of changing uniforms and removing all of the current Native American imagery on campus could take three to five years.
