Warriors may take native out of logos


WARRENTON — Rather than jump through the hoops to keep the Native American imagery, Warrenton-Hammond Superintendent Mark Jeffery is asking the community to look at another type of Warrior.

The Native American mascot ban enacted in 2012 by the Oregon Board of Education becomes effective in 2017, affecting schools in 15 districts, including the Warrenton High School Warriors and Warrenton Grade School Braves. Jeffery recommended the district go K-12 with the Warrior name and purple and white color scheme.
