The bobcat will be a permanent fixture in the student center’s new plaza in front of the cafeteria. Construction of the plaza will begin after May graduation.

“Having a Bobcat statue on campus will add to the tradition and pride that students have for JCJC," SGA Coordinator and sponsor Sonya Dykes said. "It will be a focal point for pictures for students and alumni, and it will be a lasting landmark for the campus.”
