ROSEBURG, Ore. -- The Roseburg High School Mascot Subcommittee will review more than 1,480 responses that were received through an online form, and more than 680 letters that were sent to the Roseburg School District Office.

The responses addressed whether the Roseburg School Board should respectfully retire the high school's mascot, "The Indians."

The Mascot Subcommittee met Tuesday to consider the next steps in the process and members agreed that more time is needed to review each response.

The Mascot Subcommittee will report to the school board during a meeting on Wednesday, where it will recommend that all board members should be provided with sufficient time to read through all of the responses prior to considering a vote on the mascot name change.
