KHS Eagle is stolen

May 6, 2005 Kingman Leader-Courier -  The Kingman Eagle statue is missing. School authorities noticed the cement statue gone from its roosting place at the entrance to the school Monday, May 2.

     Principal Rick Henry said the school is anxious to get the statue back and would welcome any information concerning its whereabouts.

     Henry added that the statue, donated to the school long ago by a Mobil Oil dealer, is quite heavy and that it required a tractor with a loader to place it on display.

     From time to time the Eagle has been the victim of rival schools during sporting season and carries several coats of green paint but this is the first time the Eagle has been taken.
