Hawkeye Community College will mark its 50th anniversary in 2016 with a temporary exhibit at the Grout Museum, 503 South Street, Waterloo, and the museum is looking for the public’s assistance to tell Hawkeye’s five-decade history.
The museum is seeking artifacts and memorabilia that illustrate the story of Hawkeye, its programs, its students, and its impact on the community. This may include photos, clothing, class projects, documents, and other materials related to the college past and present. The museum is not accepting diplomas or certificates.
Please call Erin Dawson, curator of exhibits, at 319-234-6357 or erin.dawson@gmdistrict.org Tuesday-Friday, 9 AM– 5 PM to schedule drop off of any materials. These items would be on temporary loan to the Grout Museum District and will be returned upon the close of the exhibit in 2017.
Hawkeye is also looking for alumni who can share their stories about attending Hawkeye and the impact it had on their lives and careers. Alumni can share those stories at www.hawkeyecollege.edu/go/your-story.
