GRAND FORKS - University of North Dakota President Robert Kelley has announced he’s going ahead with a plan to pick a new nickname and logo for the school.
At a State of the University address Wednesday, Kelley said he would be moving forward with the recommendation of forming another committee that would, through a series of public votes, ultimately pick a new nickname. The school’s controversial Fighting Sioux name was retired in late 2012.
“It was exactly what the university needed and I want to thank all the people who worked on this task force for developing a very functional and operational set of recommendations,” Kelley said.
