Several Houston Independent School District Schools have new mascots.

School officials announced the new mascots after Superintendent Terry Grier created a new policy to ban culturally insensitive mascots.  

The Westbury High Rebels and the Hamilton Middle School Indians are now the Huskies.  The Lamar High School Redskins are now the Texans and the Welch Middle School Warriors are now the Wolf Pack.

HISD will begin repainting schools and taking down all old mascot items.  Everything from scoreboards to stationary will have to the replaced.  HISD says $50,000 alone will be spent on new uniforms as well as other expenses for rebranding of gymnasiums and sports facilities.
