Opinion: Should Charlie Crusader remain as Jesuit High School’s mascot?


Charlie Crusader has been the figurehead for Jesuit High School for 65 years. While the image of Charlie has become synonymous with the school’s name, recently, there have been negative connotations surrounding the history of Crusader, and whether or not Charlie represents the values of a Jesuit education. Staff Editor Reet Chatterjee and I weighed the positives and negatives of Charlie’s presence at Jesuit; in order to avoid inserting personal biases into our work, we picked sides out of a hat. —Steele Clevenger, Editor-in-Chief
