Mascot

NewRiver Hawk RGBIn 2012 New River Community and Technical College selected the HAWK as the official mascot. Why the hawks? Voters like them because they are beautiful, intelligent birds frequently seen soaring above the New River Gorge National River which runs through our region. One said the image of a hawk soaring through the sky allows the onlooker to interpret the hawk as strong and free, traits often linked to the Mountaineers. Another felt the hawk suggests quality, integrity and dignity. Hawks soar, which is something New River students aspire to in their academics as well as their careers. Their sharp eyesight was also noted as a symbol of the "eyes on the prize" dreams of New River students. Finally, the hawk is dominant. It takes charge and sits and waits, looking for opportunities no matter how small to strike and make its presence known. All in all, a great visual to represent the spirit and tenacity of our young college and its students!

College Flag

Flag Unfurled at NCC-smallIn 2012 New River adopted a college wide flag. A simultaneous flag raising was held at its four campuses and the Advanced Technology Center in Ghent on Thursday, April 5 at 1:20 p.m. The ceremonies marked the first time that the new flag was flown at all locations. Scott Maxwell, a member of the Registrar's Office staff, did the honors on the Greenbrier Valley Campus in Lewisburg. Campus Dean Roger Griffith commented, "This flag symbolizes the spirit of New River and the hopes and dreams of its students. This is a shared experience for all of us in the New River family, as the flag is being raised at all of our campuses at the same time. It is an opportunity for us to come together as a College to reflect on our many successes and to recommit ourselves to serving New River's mission of providing accessible, affordable, quality education and workforce programs to meet the needs of people in our region."
