SAN ANTONIO COLLEGE DECIDES TO REMOVE MASCOT
As San Antonio College prepares to celebrate its 95th anniversary later this year, it has made a historic decision to remove the Ranger as the mascot for the campus.
The decision was made during a special session of the College Council, a group consisting of college administrators, department directors, faculty chairs, and program coordinators.
After listening to speakers who registered to be heard during the special session, the College Council unanimously approved a recommendation to “immediately stop using the name, symbol, logo, and image of the “Ranger” – as the college mascot and begin a college wide search for a new San Antonio College mascot.”
The recommendation was forwarded to SAC President Dr. Robert Vela, who immediately approved the measure.
“This is a historic day! The debate is over and San Antonio College has gone on record as being inclusive, diverse, empowered, decisive, true to its values – and committed to doing the right thing. We’ve taken a great leap forward and now we can begin the process of fashioning a new mascot identity that reflects the very best qualities of our SAC community,” said Dr. Vela after the decision.
