“Willie Wildcat”

In 1965 “Willie Wildcat” became the embodiment of the Wildcat Spirit.

Willie was the creation of the 1965 Beargrass Yearbook staff, led by editor Cathy Smith and designed by artist Sheila Foster.

For generations Willie continues to exemplify the standards of good sportsmanship, showmanship, and citizenship that are characteristics of the Winning Wildcat Spirit.
