DRIGGS, Idaho — Trustees in the Teton School District have voted to drop its controversial Redskins mascot.
6 On Your Side's media partners, Idaho Education News report the trustees voted 4-1 to retire Teton High School's nickname.
The decision has come with much controversy. The nickname has been around for 90 years, and over 100 people watched the meeting. Emotions ran high.
“A vote tonight would be a disservice to the valley,” one patron told the board.
It's unclear what the new nickname will be. Trustees will create a community committee later this month to find a replacement mascot.
