Thanks for covering this story! I wanted to add a couple of thoughts and information, first, that there is a difference in the quality of the two "sides" in terms of the rebel name. The "critics" assertion that it has racist origins has been supported by the quantity and quality of the evidence of the research that was done to show the connection between the name and the Jim Crow era of segregated schools and other public places.
I would also use the term "stated" in describing the student's action following her being harassed by a school board member candidate, rather than "complained," which makes her sound whiny and as if there had been no basis for her complaints.
In terms of this issue, it's disheartening to me that the state of South Carolina can take down its Confederate flag, but some South Burlington residents are both claiming that the rebel name isn't racist, and at the same time, that even if it is, it doesn't matter. I think having good community manners means making sure we acknowledge and welcome every student. And as far as I can tell, the research was done efficiently and competently and was convincing enough to the leadership to believe changing the name is the right thing to do.
