Email News Alerts

The Dickinson School Board is discussing whether its mascot name - the Midgets - is appropriate.

The board discussed the issue Monday but did not take any action.


School Board President Dean Rummel, who asked to have the issue placed on the agenda, said the issue was controversial 14 years ago and he felt it was again time for the board to discuss whether to keep the name.

In 1997 Dickinson residents and students voted against changing the name.
