Penn State Plants Trees On Old Joe Paterno Statue Plaza Grounds

||

What’s going on this afternoon at the plaza where the Joe Paterno statue was located outside Beaver Stadium? Oh, nothing, it’s just being transformed into green space. You see those guys planting the tree? Yeah, that’s where the Paterno statue used to stand. This is Penn State redefining how to wipe away a dark period in a university life.

@JohnLuciew just happened to be in the area about an hour ago.

Those wondering what site of #Paterno statue looks like now, all traces have been landscaped away & trees planted. #PSU

Workers spent Tuesday ripping down the wall that was behind the statue, according to ‏@MMisciagno.

Less than two days later it’s a mini Central Park.
