TULSA, Okla. — Union Public Schools Board of Education established a committee to review the district's mascot.
After Superintendent Dr. Kirt Harzler's recommendation, the board approved the creation of a non-standing board committee on Monday, which will include students, alumni and tribal members to review the district’s continued use of a controversial logo and mascot, according to board officials.
Officials said the committee members will be appointed and are expected to meet once a month to review potential logos.
The committee will ultimately help decide whether the current mascot needs to be retired.
Member composition and other matters related to the committee are going to be addressed during the next board meeting on Aug. 10.
