Cincinnati Country Day School retires Indian mascot, ‘effective immediately’

Cincinnati Enquirer |

The school’s Indian mascot was adopted in the 1950s. In an email to district families and alumni sent Tuesday morning, Board of Trustees President Joel Brant and Head of School Anthony Jaccaci said more than 300 community members shared their views regarding the Indians mascot through emails and a series of five Zoom meetings. Ultimately the board voted to no longer use the Indian mascot.

“An overwhelming majority voiced their desire to see the mascot changed (90% of those who spoke on the Zoom calls and nearly 80% of those who emailed the school with their opinions), and none spoke more loudly than the students themselves,” the email reads.
