Bronze Penguin Arrives

Last year, four Cushing students – Cyvian Chen, Ruochen Li, Breton Lorway, and Simret Semine – began designing a small clay penguin statue under the supervision of Mr. Bob Johnson. The goal of this small statue: to serve as a model for a 4’ 4” tall bronze penguin statue planned to stand permanently outside the main entrance to the new Watkins Field House. After many refinements over the course of the year – getting the feet just right, the eyes just so – and trips to a foundry outside of Boston, the penguin was finished, delivered, and installed on May 5, 2016. The hope is that Cushing athletes and fans will reach up and rub the penguin’s beak for good luck prior to the start of a game.
