Franklin County Mascot will Not Change

After a 5-3 vote on Monday night the Franklin County school board has voted to keep the Rebel as Franklin County High School’s mascot.

If the Franklin County Rebels’ mascot and name would have changed for the high school’s teams in at least eight sports categories, the cost for new uniforms could have been about $100,000.

The Rebel mascot was at the center of controversy over the last few months. Many people did not like the mascot being that of a Confederate man.
