Brenau University officially celebrated the beginning of its 135th anniversary on Friday with the dedication of what it believes to be the world’s largest golden tiger sculpture as the perfect symbol of the institution’s spirit, academic prowess and nationally ranked intercollegiate sports teams.

And, the statute now has a name: Lucile, in honor of Lucile Townsend Pearce, who came to the college as a student in 1897 and remained as a guiding influence for the next half century.
