An anonymous individual made the most of the recent snowfall at Northeast Community College by creating a snowman next to the hawk sculpture in front of the Cox Activities Center on the Norfolk campus.

The five-foot long hawk, with a nearly nine-foot wing span, was commissioned by members of the 2014-15 and 2015-16 Student Government Association (SGA) as their “signature project.” The stainless steel sculpture was crafted by Merle Mead, a welding/machinist instructor, who taught at Northeast from 1978-2011. The plaque reads “You have always had the wings; we just taught you how to fly.” (Courtesy Northeast Community College)
