School mascot finds its way home | Print |

After a four-generation-long absence, an old, sawdust-stuffed friend has returned home to the University of Maine at Presque Isle — thanks to a family with strong connections to the institution.
    More than eight decades ago, when the college was known as the Aroostook State Normal School, the school mascot was a bull and, during that time, a small number of one-foot-tall, hand-made, blue cloth bulls were created. However, they were all distributed and university officials assumed they’d been lost to history.

EASTON — Officials with the Francis Malcolm Institute have announced that Jeanie McGowan of Easton will be the new science/nature educator at the science center. She replaces Vaughn Martin, who recently accepted a teaching position with RSU 39.
    McGowan was born, raised, and educated in Presque Isle. With a father from Ashland and a mother from Brooklyn, N.Y., she grew up in large cities, rural communities, and remote wilderness environments. Her parents supported her passion for art, music, gardening and reading. She was educated in our country’s museums and in the natural environments of North America’s woods, deserts, mountains, and oceans. Natural history was a constant focus for hands-on learning and skill building that instilled in her a lifelong quest to learn and to share and protect the natural world.
    McGowan spent many years in the Southwest, and began her museum “career” as a volunteer in a small history museum in Prescott, Ariz. She was also co-manager of the large, city-owned Savannah History Museum in Georgia.
