Transition to new LHS symbol

June 23, 2017

Lebanon High School Community,

This was a year of unprecedented achievements with the football state championship, second place volleyball finish, JROTC rifle national championship, state championship for LHS Oregon Battle of the Books team, and many other student accomplishments. Lebanon High School has achieved a great deal this year, and we are very proud our students.

I wanted to share that this is also the year that we are transitioning our school from the use of Native American imagery for our mascot. We will still be the Lebanon Warriors. Effective June 30, 2017, the LW will be our symbol throughout the school and one that other communities and schools will recognize.

We began this transition two years ago when the gymnasium floor was redone with the LW symbol. The football turf also has the LW as our symbol. The whole school is currently being transitioned to comply with the state legislative and Oregon Department of Education rulings on Native American mascots. The large sculpture of the Native American on the horse on the front of the school will remain as a piece of art, but not representing our mascot.

We appreciate your help to stay in compliance with the new laws as we welcome the LW symbol to represent our Lebanon Warriors.
