Lakeshore eagle sculpture honors former professor Van Koevering
The family of the late Thomas E. Van Koevering has donated a sculpture for display on the Manitowoc lakeshore in his memory. Van Koevering died last April at the age of 69. A UW-Green Bay professor of Education and chemistry, he retired in 2002 after a 33-year career that included not only distinguished service in the classroom but also a great deal of science-education outreach in the community.

The eagle sculpture by Green Bay wildlife artist Carl Vanderheyden is one of several new pieces on public display along the Manitowoc lakeshore. WLUK-TV 11 did a story more on the artworks than the people they memorialize, but if you’re interested, click here.
