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!
