The Cambridge Central School District is taking more steps to change its mascot and nickname.

There is a virtual meeting happening at 7 p.m. on Thursday, where the professional firm hired by the district will talk about this.

The district in Washington County has been known as the “Indians” since the 1940s. Back in December, NewsChannel 13’s Mark Mulholland reported on the school board hearing from the community on changing the name and logo.

Those in favor of the change say it’s dehumanizing.
