Friends and families gathered near the University Lake this past spring to unveil the first installment of pavers in the new Champions Plaza, just outside the entrance to Gorilla Village.
It was a time to take pictures, for families to gather and to recall the important role that Pittsburg State University has played in the lives of generations of Gorillas.
The pavers honor athletes and non-athletes alike. The only criteria is that honorees are proud members of Gorilla Nation.
“Every paver within this plaza tells a story,” President Steve Scott said to those gathered. “The stories you’ll find in Champions Plaza go well beyond athletics into the very fabric of Pittsburg State University…alumni, students, fans, supporters.”
