We are accepting personal testimonials about why you support retiring South Point High School's Red Raider mascot. Submissions may be submitted publicly or anonymously, and may be published on Retire the Red Raider's social media accounts and website. We welcome submissions from South Point students, alumni, parents, and community members, as well as from our Native American neighbors across the state.
Retire the Red Raider is a coalition of alumni, students, teachers, community members, and Native leaders working to retire South Point High School’s offensive Red Raider mascot. We are committed to removing names, logos, and appropriative actions that perpetuate negative stereotypes about Native people, and to working with the community to choose a mascot that better represents the values of inclusivity and unity that Belmont and South Point aspire to.
