Alderson-Broaddus University, Philippi

Mark Warner, 1968

Inscription reads:

Warner’s idea came from Sir Isaac Newton’s “I stand on the shoulders of giants.” He named the statue Apollo in appreciation for the space program. Alderson-Brauddus chose it for the centennial symbol – 1971 – because the college’s aspirations are dependent upon the past and persons now here and to come.
