The McLaughlin Mustangs? That's Right...

McLaughlin School District

McLaughlin High School has a new mascot after a school board meeting vote resulted in the change. For the past six decades they have been known as the McLaughlin Midgets, but after Monday nights vote, they'll now be known as the McLaughlin Mustangs.

The change was prompted when the group 'Little People of America' approached McLaughlin asking for a new mascot, due to the term "midget" being considered a deregatory slur (via LPA).

On Monday, those voting had three choices for a new mascot.

And here were the results.

What do you think of the new McLaughlin mascot?
