Memorial Design Winner

May 11, 2022

The City of Canton announced the winner of the Veterans Memorial design contest on May 4 at Canton City Hall. Jerry Prather, President of Canton Parks Board and Mayor Jarrod Phillips announced the winner, Bryan Hunter, a senior at Culver-Stockton College. The monument will be placed in the Veteran’s Memorial Park in Canton.

Many entries were received and Prather said several of those were entered by Canton High School students. Hunter’s design will feature a monument dedicated to all military branches. A park bench for reflecting and sitting is also a part of the design.

Hunter said he has visited the park many times during his studies at Culver-Stockton College. Although he will graduate in May, he plans to return for the dedication when the project is completed.
