South Albany High School and GAPS have gone beyond the pale to even consider spending in the neighborhood of $250,000 (or any other amount of taxpayer monies) for the absurd notion that the name “Rebels” implies something nefarious and should be changed to reflect a name “that more closely aligns with the many great things going on at SAHS.” What does Belveal even mean by such a mealy-mouthed remark?
In the event anyone has forgotten, the American revolutionaries were also called rebels, and we as a nation should be proud not only of being called rebels, but for being rebels.
I for one rebel against this insanity. Keep the mascot name.
