Haver said he “wasn’t exactly in favor” of changing either the mascot or fight song.
“I’d hate to see a school lose its traditions of 52 years,” he said. “But the board gets to make that decision. It’s amazing one situation causes such a knee-jerk reaction across the nation.”
If the school board moves forward with the changes, “We’ll do what it takes,” Haver added.
He estimates the mascot change will cost between $200,000-$500,000 for new uniforms, gym floors, scoreboards and stadium signs.
The School Board wants to ban the use of “Dixie” as the school’s fight song for the upcoming 2015-16 year, while the mascot would be changed for the 2016-17 year. Communication Director Zena Featherston Marshall said that if the measure is ultimately approved next month, other Rebel-related monikers like the Dixie Belles drill team, Confederette girls’ volleyball team and Johnny Rebs choir will also be changed.
