Ketchikan High School students have voted overwhelmingly in favor of keeping the school's king salmon logo.

Reports say students voted 295 to 53 Thursday in favor of the current logo, which was designed by artist Ray Troll.

A proposed logo to replace the current one was based on Alaska Native art. That logo was designed by freshman Samuel Rasmussen.

The current logo is located on the floor of the school gym, which is being resurfaced this summer.

The logo will be reapplied after the floor is sanded. The floor will then be resurfaced.

The proposal to replace the logo caused a ripple in the community, with high school alumni coming out overwhelmingly in favor of the current design.
