(SAVANNAH, Mo.) The Savannah R-3 Board of Education voted to create a committee to decide the fate of the Savages mascot.

During Tuesday night's meeting, the board discussed the best way to move forward with a committee, and created an application for individuals to make their case to be on it.

School board officials say the committee will feature the same number of people opposed to changing, as in favor of the change.

However, the committee will feature one unbiased individual.

It's something the board feels is needed for a decision like this.

"When choosing a chair, I hope that we can find somebody that is most importantly a strong listener and can listen to all sides of the argument rationally and then present the board with the appropriate information to make a decision," Savannah Board of Education member Joseph Barbosa said.

The school district will post the application on its social media platforms and website Wednesday and hope to get postcards in the mail for community members who don't have access to the application online.

A cold front has moved through the area late this afternoon in the early evening giving us a few showers and storms. A few isolated showers and storms have developed ahead of the front and could give us the chance for rain late this morning as well. Winds will be breezy today from the south ahead of our cold front. Once the cold front moves through, temperatures will be much cooler for the rest of the week. Highs will be below average in the 70s. Dry and sunny conditions look to continue through the rest of the work week into the weekend.
