A Holland woman who wants Springfield Local Schools to change its mascot has started an online petition drive to gain support.
Julie Elrod wants the Blue Devils replaced with something neutral. She took her idea to the Board of Education and was told to start a petition drive that would show the board how much support exists for the change.
To sign the petition, go to go peti tion.com, click on the education tab, and find the May 12 petition titled “Change Springfield Blue Devil Mascot.”
