Hal Greer statue to be unveiled during MU homecoming weekend


A statue of Huntington and Marshall University legend Hal Greer is set to be unveiled during homecoming weekend this fall.

The university’s Board of Governors approved naming the corner of 18th Street and 3rd Avenue as Hal Greer Memorial Plaza on Friday following an executive session. The plaza will be home to the statue of Greer.

Friday’s meeting was held at Glade Springs Resort for the yearly board retreat.
The statue was originally set to be unveiled in 2020, but pandemic-related delays at the foundry and the pandemic itself caused the university, along with Greer’s family, to decide to push back the unveiling.
