SKOWHEGAN — Students in Skowhegan will have nine choices to vote on for their new school mascot.
In March, the school board voted to retire the Skowhegan Indians mascot.
New options on the table include the Badgers, Fishercats, Phoenix, River Drivers, River Hawks, Sturgeon, Trailblazers or Skowhegan.
Students will have until Sept. 4 to cast their votes.
“At that point it’s slotted to go back to the committees for the protocol we adopted about a year ago on how to go through the process,” said Jennifer Poirier, a Skowhegan School Board member. “Then the committees will discuss whatever the date we receive is.”
Once the committees finish their discussions, the school board will have final say on the decision.
