President/CEO of AMTIS, Inc., Barbara Stankowski attended the dedication the Penn State University Veterans Plaza, a gift of the Class of 2011, dedicated in a public ceremony on Friday, Sept. 14, 2012 on the patio of Old Main, on the University Park campus. The plaza will honor all Penn State veterans, including the late Lt. Michael P. Murphy, the only Penn State alumnus to be awarded the Medal of Honor.
The plaza's design features a circular walkway and curved stone wall, centered around an artistic representation of a warrior’s shield, symbolizing honor and sacrifice. The shield's surface is carved with a "rippling water" effect, to evoke a feeling of tranquility.
The curved wall bears the inscription of a Greek phrase, believed to have been spoken by Spartan mothers to their sons before battle, meaning, “With it [your shield], or on it."
Witt noted that according to ancient Spartan tradition, a warrior was never without his shield -- he either returned home from battle alive, carrying his shield, or dead, carried upon it by his comrades.
The plaza’s curved wall is named to honor Murphy, a 1998 liberal arts graduate and a Navy SEAL. He received the U.S. military's highest decoration posthumously for his actions in 2005 during the war in Afghanistan.
"Veterans have risked and sacrificed their own safety so we are free to pursue our daily lives in a protected homeland," said Samuel E. Hayes Jr., Penn State trustee, alumnus and veteran. "With this Penn State Veterans Plaza, the Class of 2011 has achieved a noble height in philanthropic citizenship. We salute our veterans. We salute the Penn State Class of 2011."
Speakers at the dedication included Witt; Hayes; Penn State President Rodney Erickson; retired Navy Capt. Ryan J. McCombie, University trustee, alumnus and veteran; University Archivist Jackie Esposito; and Daniel Murphy, Michael Murphy's father.
The tradition of class gifts began when the Class of 1861, at its reunion in 1890, gave the University a portrait of Penn State's first president, Evan Pugh, which still hangs in the lobby of Old Main.
