SHEPHERDSTOWN, WV — There will be a new fan at Shepherd University football games when the season starts in the fall. The university has a new mascot, a Dorset ram named J.C. Named for Shepherd President Mary J.C. Hendrix’s middle initials, the ram was purchased with donations from Shepherd alumni Al and Sara Lueck; Holly Morgan Frye, assistant vice president for student affairs and director of community and congressional relations, and her husband, Jim Frye; and Dr. Ben Martz, dean of the College of Business. J.C. will attend Shepherd football games and a variety of other events on campus.
