Wichita North High School will no longer be the Redskins.

The school board  voted 6-0 Monday night to drop the controversial mascot at the recommendation of a committee formed last summer.

Board member Stan Reeser said that although the name was well-intentioned when the school was founded in 1929, “it’s clearly become a slang term with racial overtones and derogatory meaning.”
