Bulldog Sculpture Dedication This Saturday at SWOSU


A dedication ceremony will be held this Saturday, April 17, for the new bulldog sculpture on the Southwestern Oklahoma State University campus in Weatherford.

The public is invited to the 11:30 a.m. ceremony just south of the clock tower. A reception will follow in the Burton House. 

Duke, the bulldog, is a bronze sculpture that was designed and built by Frank Moran of Weatherford. The SWOSU Alumni Association Board of Directors has organized the project, which was made possible by Jim Andrews and E. Vann Greer Andrews of Edmond, who generously donated money to cover the entire cost of the $30,000 project.

The bulldog is approximately 4 feet tall and 5 feet long.

Jim Waites, vice president for institutional advancement and head of the SWOSU Alumni Association, said he believes alumni and visitors are going to be impressed with the new Duke sculpture. He expresses appreciation to everyone involved in the project.
