Legacy breaks ground
On Wednesday, the Panther “Legacy” statue was placed on top of a platform in front of Cy Springs.
The stand will be made of marble, and is expected to be completed by the end of the year. The riser will feature the names of those who donated to the cost of the statue.The name “Legacy” was voted on by Cy Springs.
"I'm very excited that Legacy has arrived and I can't wait until he is completely finished, but he is here for everyone to see on the prowl for Cypress Springs," said principal Dr. Cheryl Henry.
Cypress Springs partnered with statuary Schlitzberger & Daughters Monument Co. to make the life-size panther statue. The statue is a tangible celebration of the school’s 20th anniversary.
"The Panther looks great... a lot of attention paid to the details of it, and does our school proud by representing what we stand for, excellence," said director of instruction Dr. Plas Williams.
