FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - Woodrow Wilson High School in Fargo will be renamed “Dakota High School” starting next school year.

It was decided that the name Woodrow Wilson would be changed due to the racist history of the former president.

The vote to choose a new name was a close call Tuesday night. Dakota High School received 28 points to take the lead, Central High School a close second with 26 points.

A mascot is yet to be determined.
