The chanting of “Trump! Trump!” directed at Perry boys basketball players by a few DC-G students during their Feb. 22 District 15 Final in Adel has apparently inspired copy cat students at a northwest Indiana high school.
Quickly quelled by DC-G school officials, the chant, using the name of GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump, received national media attention and was the leading topic on Facebook Feb. 26.
DC-G student leaders met with their Perry counterparts three days later to apologize for the acts of a small number of their classmates. The meeting was widely hailed as a step toward better understanding between the schools and has served to heal any hard feelings.
