Olympic torch replica going to Loras College

DUBUQUE (KWWL) -- A piece of the Beijing Olympics is on its way to Dubuque.  Loras College will be receiving a replica Olympic torch Friday, in recognition of the college's outstanding business partnership with computer maker Lenova.

Lenova, which acquired IBM's PC business in 2005, was a technology sponsor of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.  The company is giving a handful of the torches to colleges throughout the U.S.

The torch will be presented to Loras at 10:00 a.m. Friday on Keane Hall Porch by Lenovo representative Kevin Kloepple.
