Ripon College staff pitch in to revamp veterans’ display in downtown Ripon
An article highlighting a recent town-gown collaboration between the College and a community group was published July 7, 2021, in the Ripon Commonwealth newspaper. “Ripon College steps up to replace veterans’ display on Ransom Street” details efforts by Vice President and Dean of Faculty John Sisko and U.S. Army Capt. Thomas Ivey, head of Ripon’s Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) program, to revamp the deteriorated directory.
“Names had been printed on paper and sheets had degraded to the point where some had fallen out of the display and others were too sun bleached to be legible,” Sisko says in the article. “I thought, with Ripon College’s commitment to community engagement and supporting the city, that we could do something about that.”
Ivey took the lead in seeing that a new durable printed aluminum sheet was installed, displaying all the names and a key for locating the veterans’ markers.
