Penguin Hunt Winner!

You may remember that last week our students were on a penguin hunt to capture photos of the elusive Cushing Penguin as part of the Cushing Olympics competition. He was spotted all over campus – at basketball and hockey games, in the clock tower, and even hopping a ride in the golf cart. In Friday’s assembly, he was finally captured by our security team and brought before the audience, ending this year’s hunt. After all the photos were received, it was determined that day student Doug Hartshorn ’15 snapped the best image with his selfie. Congratulations, Doug!
Will the Penguin return next year? Stay tuned!
