UMW “fighting Eagle” logos already damaged
It has been less than a month since the University of Mary Washington had 12 “fighting Eagle” logos placed on College Avenue, but two of them have already been damaged by traffic, a UMW spokesman said. One of the damaged mascots is pictured above.
“University staff have spoken with the vendor who provided the Eagle street logos, and the vendor will repair them. That may not happen until spring because the surface temperature has to be a minimum of 45 degrees and remain 45 and above for several days,” spokesman George Farrar said in an e-mail. He said UMW will not have to pay for the repairs.
Each 7- by 7-foot logo–essentially large decals made of thermal plastic–cost $1,335 for a total of $16,020.
