Foundation for Linn State Technical College
Eagle Monument Fund
On August 31, 2011, Linn State Technical College kicked off a year-long celebration of the college's 50th anniversary with a Founders Day ceremony.
During the ceremony the bronze eagle monument was dedicated. The eagle monument, made possible by the generous contributions of alumni, friends and supporters of the college, is a symbolic landmark honoring graduates of the college, commemorating the college's history and renewing the college's commitment to the eagle as the official college mascot.
Donors were recognized and those providing cash and in-kind donations of $1,000 or more were honored with a bronze replica of the eagle monument. Donors receiving the statues were Midwest Block and Brick, Jefferson City, Missouri; Tom & Patti Dinkins, Saint Louis, MO; Clarke & Arlene Thomas, Saint Louis, Missouri; Donald and Linda Claycomb, Linn, Missouri; and Michael and Carla McDaniel, Bonnots Mill, Missouri.
The monument, sculpted by Sabra Tull Meyer, is located in the roundabout of the main campus featuring an eagle leaving the nest and taking flight. The eagle statue is a reminder of the many students who have and will continue to graduate from the college and venture into the world of profitable employment and a life of learning.
All contributions to the Eagle Monument Fund are gratefully received and deeply appreciated.
