HPU, Community Celebrate Unveiling Of Memorial Statue

Posted on September 28, 2009.

Thanks to the generosity of High Point University and Dr. Nido Qubein, president of High Point University, in cooperation with The High Point Community Foundation and other charitable donors, the High Point Police Department secured enough funds for the completion of the “Memorial Guardian Statue.”
 
The statue, unveiled on Sept. 25, represents the pride of the agency and honors those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their community. The symbolic bronze piece stands at 6-foot-tall, and signifies the completion of the department’s Fall Officer Memorial site.
 
“We are proud to be able to contribute to such a worthy project that honors those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our community,” Qubein says.
 
The special memorial project cost $70,000, and coordination for the construction was planned to coincide with The City of High Point’s Sesquicentennial Celebration.
