At the final varsity football game of the year on Oct. 28, a horrific mistake was made.

A sign was created out of ignorance, not hate.

There are no words to express our deepest sympathy to those of Native American and African American descent.

We also owe a sincere apology to the communities, families and students of Hillsboro, Greenfield, and beyond. We are currently completing an internal investigation of how this deplorable situation arose.

We will take appropriate steps once we have all of the necessary information.

By partnering with local organizations, McClain High School will immediately use this moment to further educate our students on the atrocities faced by both the Native American and African American cultures.
