Watch for bulls about town

This month, ten bull sculptures arrived at Utah State University as part of the Aggie Stampede. This project brings Utah State University, the city of Logan, downtown businesses and local artists together to help celebrate our 40th anniversary. 

Since their arrival the bulls have made their way to sponsoring businesses around town. For a list of sponsors, visit our Aggie Stampede page.

The CPD's own sculpture, Lil Marv, has migrated around the CPD and undergone preparations for his first appearance--documented on our Facebook page. Lil Marv is now coated in Aggie Blue chalkboard paint so that you can decorate him as he travels with us.

He and his bovine friends will make their first appearance next month at the Cache County Fair. Watch for them--and for the friendly people at booths for the National Children's Study-Utah, the Up to 3 program, the Utah Traumatic Brain Injury project and the Center for Persons with Disabilities. It's our chance to meet the people of Cache County and help them get to know us. 

CPD by the numbers

We’ve done a separate post on the CPD History Channel blog about Dr. Marvin Fifield’s contributions to the disability community. Here, voices from around the CPD remember his contributions to us.
