  • David Lloyd, a Photography major at Mohawk Valley Community College, has been announced as the winner of the “Name Our Hawk” contest to give a name to the school’s new mascot.
    Mo the Hawk, unveiled on the school’s Oct. 18 Midnight Madness basketball event, was named in a contest held via social media.
    The winning name, Mo, was also suggested by other students, so a drawing was held to determine the winner. More than 150 comments were posted as part of the contest. Lloyd, who has an independent study in graphic design, was awarded an iPad Mini as his prize for submitting the winning entry.
    In his entry, Lloyd wrote: “Mo should be the name of our new mascot! Without his name being Mo we cannot call ourselves MOhawk Valley Community College. Also if you think about it, a mohawk is a very edgy haircut that lots of musically and artistically talented people have. MVCC is known for its excellent art programs as well as many other programs that help many students achieve great jobs without going to a four-year college. That’s why our Hawk should be called Mo so our mascot is connected with our name and the great things we do at our school.”
    Lloyd, of New Hartford, is scheduled to graduate in the spring of 2014.
