LIVERPOOL, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Liverpool Central School District’s mascot, a warrior, has been an ongoing discussion.
Back in April of 2023, the New York State Board of Regents unanimously approved new rules to ban the use of Native American culture by schools.
But Liverpool says their current mascot — a Roman Warrior — was adopted 20 years ago, and that they would prefer to keep the Roman Warrior logo but change the nickname. Keeping the current logo would cause less disruption for their branding work.
Many don’t agree with the state’s new terms, but the school must abide and move forward with brainstorming a new mascot.
Today, Jan. 29, the district released a survey to the community asking for their suggestions.
“Members of the Liverpool community (current students, staff and families, as well as alumnus, retirees and community members) can submit their suggestions to replace the Warrior nickname and state why they feel the suggested nickname best fits with the current logo,” the website said.
You can find the survey HERE.
It will close on Feb. 9, 2024.
