Keep South Eugene’s Mascot the AXEMEN!!!
This petition had 3,776 supporters
I am starting a petition, that I'm hoping many of you will sign, to stop the changing of the AXEMEN name.
Being an Alumni, Class of 1979, this is a topic I'm very passionate about. I remember being in Junior High and couldn't wait to be an AXEMEN. When I finally got to be an Axemen, I became a Cheerleader and was involved with whatever I could be to show Axemen Pride. When I became a Mother, I held on to that same pride and passed it down to my Daughters. Both ended up being multi-sport athletes, wearing the Axemen printed on their chest like a badge of honor. That sense of Axemen Pride landed them on (and to this day) the Track and Field top 10 Board.
Like I said am very proud to an Axemen and will ALWAYS be. I even found my way back to coach the Cheerleading Squad, in the later 2000's. No matter what age I am South Eugene High will always be MY school. We have 10 year /20 year /40 year an up reunions to get together with classmates to celebrate the Axemen traditions.
Lastly I'll leave you with this, If my passion is not enough to get you to sign my petition then maybe the cost of new sports uniforms/ the merchandise purchased at those sporting events to everything with a logo. The list goes on and on. Not to mention, but if the name is changed, does that mean the school colors change as well?...
Thank you for taking the time to read/ sign my petition. And as always...
