Meet Our Mascot! Blazer the Newfie

Blazer the Newfie joined the Lewis and Clark Community College family on Aug. 20, 2018. 

Modeled loosely after the famous Newfoundland dog that accompanied Merriwether Lewis and William Clark on their Corps of Discovery, Blazer is named for the college's mascot, the Trailblazers.
