Century Walk: ‘College, Community and Country’

-

So why not take in your favorite high school team and/or our local college, North Central, as they pursue another Division III Title. And while you’re at Championship Plaza, be inspired by “College, Community and Country”, a sculpture of Cardinal football player and World War II Veteran, Billy Shatzer II, who was a four sport all conference athlete. He was reported missing in action on May 16, 1944, never seeing his son who was born several months thereafter.
