BRIGHTON, N.Y. (WHEC) — A local school district is changing its mascot.
The Brighton Baron is out.
In a statement, the school said, "The Baron is a symbol of elitism and privilege at best and can be historically traced to slavery."
Brighton's Superintendent says the district will begin the process of picking a new mascot.
They will be looking for community input.
