Anderson High School names final 5 candidates for new mascot

A place to catch your breath at Anderson High School.

Anderson High School and Forest Hills Local School District announced the final five choices in its search for a new mascot on Wednesday.

The final choices are:

  • Comets.
  • Phoenix.
  • Raptors.
  • Ravens.
  • Riverhawks.

Ten semi-finalists were voted on in December. Anderson High School has been without a logo since July 2 when the Forest Hills School District board voted the "Redskins" retire with no substitute. 

The mascot debate has surfaced multiple times since at least 1999, but came to a head this summer after more than 16,500 signatures were gathered in a petition that said the "Redskins" is the "moral equivalent of the N-word." Other social media posts and in-person rallies prompted the vote, and the district has since moved to change the mascot partially through funds collected on a GoFundMe page.
