GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KJCT) - Thunder Mountain Elementary unveiled its new mascot today.

The school’s previous mascot was the Thunderbirds.

A state measure passed nearly two years ago made it illegal to use Native Americans as representation of a mascot.

Their ceremony began at 1:30 p.m.

School staff filled the gym along with pupils excited for the new launch.

Another area school, this one in Montrose, changed it’s mascot from the Thunderbirds to the Timberwolves.
