Freedom Plaza dedicated at Delta State’s Parker Field

By July 23, 2010General



A new flagpole and brick structure with a plaque honoring Delta State students-athletes who have fallen in service to the nation was dedicated during halftime ceremonies at the first home game at the Travis E. Parker Field. The “Freedom Plaza” is located at the north end of the football field. The Cleveland Knights of Columbus organization has provided immeasurable assistance in the completion of this project.
