Board of education votes to reinstate Native American mascot

KILLINGLY, Conn. (AP) - A board of education in Connecticut have voted to bring back the name of a controversial Native American-themed athletic mascot. The Killingly Board of Education opted to reinstate the Redmen mascot at a meeting Wednesday night. In October, the same board approved the new Red Hawks mascot after it was overwhelmingly approved by students at Killingly High School. Newly-elected Republican members of the education board made a campaign promise to reverse the change. The board, with a Republican majority, held a public meeting on Dec. 11 where it voted to remove the Red Hawks mascot but tied on whether to return to the original mascot.
