Tomah High School retires Indian logo, mascot during ceremony 6-9-07

TOMAH, Wis. (AP) - Tomah High School retired its Indians logo and mascot during a ceremony Saturday and officially adopted the Timberwolves mascot.

The school district had used the Indians logo since the 1930s.

The school board in October voted to retire the Indians logo and mascot at the end of the school year.

The decision came after the State Department of Public Instruction urged all Wisconsin school districts to drop Indian nicknames.

School district residents, students and alumni chose Timberwolves over Titans during the final round of voting by a 764-558 margin.
