J. Denny and Jenny Beaver
Who was in the suit?
Thank you Alex Parker, Lezlie Thompson, Daila Moore, Amber Steinke and two-year J. Denny Jeremy Amstutz. And good luck to all applicants for the 2015-16 mascots.
More than a year of planning led to the introduction of J. Denny Beaver during 2010 Opening Convocation. Naming the mascot in honor of Dr. J. Denny Weaver, professor emeritus of religion, captures a historical connection and tells a story. Get the whole story.
Four years later, in fall 2014, Jenny Beaver made her debut on campus to share the
mascot duties. The eventual addition of a female mascot had been envisioned when J.
Denny was introduced, in order to allow shorter students to "get in the suit." Get Jenny's story.
