Bellfonte Mascot Update

The Bellefonte Area School District will make a decision to either keep or remove the school’s Red Raider’s nickname.

A few weeks ago the school voted 8 to 1 to remove the school’s longtime Native American mascot imagery.

Over the past year the topic has sparked many debates and rallys by alum, students, and Bellefonte residents, both to keep the mascot, and to remove it.

Those who want to keep the Red Raider nickname say it is a way to honor the culture.

While others say it is racist.

The meeting started Tonight at 6pm.

Sarah Metts will have the details and the outcome Tonight at 11.
