High School Students: ‘Millionaires’ Mascot is Offensive

The ‘Millionaires’ mascot at a Massachusetts high school, Lenox Memorial Middle and High School, was deemed offensive by its students. Really?!

The mascot has historical origins, according to the newspaper, dating back to decades ago when millionaires who owned cottages in the town donated money to help erect the school and kept the town afloat as local residents served in the military overseas.

Yet, despite those origins, some students say the “Millionaires” mascot is a problem.
