Concerned about logo

(To the Editor)


Dear Christians,


I am so very concerned about the logo and name of our school’s mascot. I’m so glad the school board is considering something different. I keep thinking, “What would Jesus do” if He returns and finds our children are wearing and shouting the name of the “devil.”

Concerned citizens, would you please let your school board know your feelings. Their next meeting is Nov. 14, 2012, at 7 p.m. in the Stewart School.

It was my understanding the superintendent and/or principal had suggested a city-wide contest to design a new logo. That seems to make this letter a rather moot point. Merely, submit a design for the new logo and stop worrying unnecessarily. They had to stop using the existing logo because it too closely resembled one used by a Catholic University in Chicago. The nickname seems not to have troubled that school, or many others who use it or a similar variation (e.g. Duke Blue Devils).
