December 27, 2020


CALEDONIA — The Cal-Mum High School community received word on Wednesday morning that the district will transition from the moniker ‘Red Raiders’ and move forward as the ‘Raiders.’ Cal-Mum will also retire the school’s mascot, which depicts a Native American.

“The school’s mascot and name were not in-line with our goals to maintain a climate that acknowledges and celebrates diversity and inclusiveness while recognizing the dignity and self-worth of each person,” read a letter sent to the Cal-Mum community.
