Boise High received unanimous approval from the Boise School Board Monday to change its mascot from Braves to Brave. But, the process could take several years to complete.

Monday, Boise High officials will come to the school board meeting with a plan to change their mascot. Since the 1920s, the high school’s mascot has been the “Braves.” The new mascot would be “Boise Brave.” The Idaho Statesman broke this story and we check in to look at the history, and the future, of the mascot.
