Change Marengo Community High School Mascot to the Marengutans

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


Marengo Community High School, located in Marengo, IL, is one of few remaining schools in the 21st century still using a derogatory name for its mascot. It is time we rid ourselves of this outdated symbol and embrace a new representation that accurately reflects the diversity and open-mindedness of the good citizens of Marengo. 

In addition to ending a negative stereotype, a change in mascot can be used as an opportunity to shed light on a cause that affects not only Marengo, but the world. Nearly half of Earth's species of plants, animals and microoganisms will be destroyed or severely threatened over the next quarter century due to Rainforest deforestation. By changing the name of Marengo Community High School's mascot to the "Marengutans" our city can shine a spotlight on a cause truly in need of immediate attention. 

Thank you for your support!
