'Bronze Bobcat' statue unveiled at JCJC

ELLISVILLE, MS (WDAM) - The Alumni Association and SGA coordinated efforts to raise money for a "Bronze Bobcat" statue has been successful, and the statue was unveiled on Wednesday.

The "Bronze Bobcat" unveiling is the result of fundraising efforts between the Student Government Association and the Alumni Association, along with the generous donations of private citizens.

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."
