On Friday, an unveiling ceremony was held at Howard Lumber and Hardware on Gentilly Road in Statesboro for the newest addition to the Eagle Nation on Parade project. The sculpture, commissioned by Arthur and Carol Howard, was designed by Georgia Southern University Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art graduate students Courtney Ryan, of Columbus, Georgia, and Jessamy McManus, of Lilburn, Georgia. Four generations of Howards have worked in the lumber industry processing longleaf yellow pines in Bulloch County since 1898.
