Westmont Installs Sculpture of Former President David Winter and His Wife

Bronze statue is placed outside the entrance to Winter Hall for Science and Mathematics

Workers have installed a new bronze statue of former Westmont College president David Winter walking with wife, Helene, outside the entrance to Winter Hall for Science and Mathematics.

Encinitas-based artists T.J. Dixon and James Nelson created the life-size sculpture and delivered it to campus on Monday.

Westmont Trustee Walter Hansen, who commissioned the sculpture along with his wife, Darlene, said the statue reflects the Winters’ love for each other.

“They are strolling along, walking together, and that’s been their life — walking together and leading this campus as a married couple, exuding an exuberance of love for each other, love for the Lord and love for Westmont,” Hansen says.

President Gayle Beebe and the Westmont College Board of Trustees will officially dedicate Winter Hall at a public ribbon-cutting ceremony at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, May 5.

— Scott Craig is the media relations manager for Westmont College.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
