Black hawk drawn by Ruth Patterson, black ink
POCAHONTAS, AR May 8 — To celebrate the upcoming BRTC mascot, the black hawk, BRTC President Martin Eggensperger invited Dr. Sandy Baltz’s drawing class students to draw their version of a black hawk. Dr. Eggensperger was very impressed by the students’ works.
Pocahontas native Ruth Patterson’s hawk will be hung in the president’s office. Patterson’s hawk is a black ink drawing and took her between eight and ten hours to complete. “When asked what we hoped to accomplish in our Drawing I class,” Patterson said, “I stated, ‘I need your help to flesh out my stick figures.’”
Patterson is will be graduating with an associate’s degree from BRTC in December 2020. She is a member of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. “I love the beautiful BRTC campus, staff, and excellent instructors,” she said.
