Turbo receives a makeover

new_turbo.jpgGeneva College’s tornado mascot, Turbo, has recently been restored and given a fresh look. The Geneva College Student Union (GCSU), which is in charge of the mascot, had originally considered having the costume professionally cleaned; however, because of its size, this option was not feasible.

Carrie Havranek, a local costume maker, volunteered to help in the restoration process, and she built a new design for Turbo that will be more easily maintained.

Senior class president Kylie Gardner helped initiate Turbo’s restoration. “Turbo is crucial to school pride,” she said. “Everyone loves Turbo, so to re-do his appearance was a little nerve-racking because he is so loved. But his renovation is great. The updated look makes Turbo more modern while preserving the tradition, which to me is what Geneva is all about.”
