West Hartford’s Conard, Hall high schools introduce new logos

(WTNH)–It’s a new school year, and new logos for two high schools in West Hartford. The city’s school board voted in March to keep the names of the Conard High School and Hall High School mascots, but change their locals.

That’s because their logos used Native American imagery.

The Conard Chieftains will no longer use a picture of a head of a Native American as their logo. The new symbol is a shield, or coat of arms, with the letter ‘C’ on it. The four quadrants of the arms represent community, arts, athletics and academics.

Meanwhile, Hall High School, whose mascot also showed the head of a Native American with feathers in the hair, now uses the letter ‘H’ and ‘W’ over what looks like a face mask or also a sheild.
