Change the monicker/mascot of KonKreteKids

This area is well known for its rich ties with the K.K.K. As time moves on, so does the change and shift in the present and in our future. An educational system should not have a mascot name formed from the K.K.K. nor should it be so obviously placed in the misspelling of concrete. This is a time where many nationalities share in their learning experience and receive graduate honors. I think that it is terrible that the pride of the graduating students as well as students attending are disgraced with such a thing. The name should be changed to something that every student can be proud to claim as their school.

To:
Tom Corbett, Governor
Change the monicker/mascot of Konkrete Kids. Koncrete Kids will remove the controversy all around.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      I graduated from Nirthampton in 2002. I am embarrassed by the mascot. Change the spelling!

      I am always sensitive to racial issues. It is a stupid moniker.

      I seriously can't believe there is a SCHOOL BOARD out there who thinks it's OK to have any connection to the KKK, even unintentionally. I don't even want to discuss the possibility this was an intentional connection because my comment could turn into a tirade!
