HAMMOND – A new Lion statue will soon stand sentry over Southeastern Louisiana University’s Friendship Circle with his gaze set upon Strawberry Stadium.

All Lion fans are invited to attend the statue’s unveiling this Thursday at 5:30 p.m. on the westernmost end of Friendship Circle.

The ceremony will be brief so fans can return to tailgating for the Lions’ home opener against Jacksonville State, which kicks off at 7 p.m. in Strawberry Stadium.

Student Government Association President Karley Bordelon will be joined by past presidents Richard Davis and Seth Leto for the unveiling. Leto’s administration was responsible for launch of a lion statue project for campus with funding provided by the SGA.

Created by Matt Glenn with Big Statues, the bronze statue is 65" tall, 82" from head to tail, and weighs 800 pounds.
