This week we began to release a series of four videos created by our talented friends, Drs. Cary Elza and Alex Ingersoll, both faculty in Media Studies at UW-Stevens Point. We are tremendously grateful for their time, expertise, and contribution to promoting the Emerson Park Revitalization Project.
A revitalized Emerson Park will provide an inviting extension from UW-Stevens Point; connecting the campus community to the city on common public ground as well as augment the planned improvements at Goerke Field and the University athletic fields, providing tournament families with a place to gather, and younger children an opportunity to participate in play.
We’re truly honored by the support of UW-Stevens Point Chancellor, Dr. Thomas Gibson, legendary Pointers Basketball coach Jack Bennett, and the staff of the University Child Learning and Care Center, including the beloved Teacher Alicia, who has taught so many of our children. Together they represent the past, present, and future of the University and our community.
Our first video can be found at the bottom of our History page. This video highlights the recollections of Judy Cable Anderson and Thomas Razner, both junior high graduates of Emerson in 1957. Thomas and Judy grew up on Ellis and Clark Street with a long family history at Emerson School. Together, with Judy’s brother, the late Dick Cable, they purchased the first Memorial Bench for Emerson Park.
