Mascot choice worries ‘concerned grandma’

-A A +A

I feel compelled to question the selection of the Tomahawks as a mascot for our new elementary school in Indian Land. 

With so many media stories telling of children being expelled from school for bringing weapons to school, are you sure you want to select a tomahawk as a mascot?

How about the Catawbas? Or some other recognition of the Indian Land area of Lancaster County?

Don’t select a weapon and then have to discipline a student for bringing one to school.
