Superintendent Dr. Kristin E. Barker read a statement at Monday’s school board meeting announcing a change in the Morgan Raider mascot. The Morgan Raider will now don an all-navy uniform that “will not represent any particular branch of the service or of historical reference.”

In her statement, Barker thanked the more than 300 people who were involved in the discussions throughout the last several months. She sees the recent discussions about the school mascot as a way to further conversations in the community regarding local and American history and current events. She believes the change will better represent the district, as well as students, parents, veterans, and everyone involved in the school and the Morgan County community as a whole.
