Proposal to drop Napa High Indian mascot draws protests

Napa High School announced Wednesday morning that it may drop its Indian mascot name after a school district committee recommended it be changed. Students and alumni reacted emotionally to the news that spread quickly across social media and locally.

In a statement read in classrooms to students by faculty, Principal Annie Petrie said the Napa High School Mascot Committee “put forth a near unanimous recommendation that the Napa High mascot be changed.”

Petrie, who served on the ad hoc committee consisting of students, alumni, parents, teachers, administrators, school board members and activists, said the Napa Valley Unified School District Board of Education will discuss the mascot recommendation at a special meeting on April 6 from 6-7 p.m.

Residents will have the opportunity to speak at that meeting, Petrie said. She added a decision would likely be made at another school board meeting scheduled for April 20.
