Ram donation

Bernice Rowan, 60, left, of Bluemont, chats with Strasburg High School athletic director Matt Hiserman, right, about the Fannin ram she recently donated to the high school. Rowan, a big-game hunter and a 1972 Strasburg High School graduate, shot the animal during a 2005 hunting trip in Alaska. Rowan, a hunter for 35 years, has hunted in Alaska and Africa and holds the record for the largest brown bear killed in Alaska at 10 1/2 feet tall. The mount will be displayed in the Ram Wall of Fame area showcasing the school's athletes. Rich Cooley/Daily
