Grover Cobb Memorial Restoration
October 17, 2017, the KAB and KAB Foundation rededicated the Grover
Cobb Memorial, located under the historic tower on the K-State campus.
The original memorial to legendary broadcaster Grover Cobb was dedicated
in October 1975, but through the years had fallen into disrepair.
Thanks to many wonderful people and organizations, funds were raised to
reconstruct the site using the creative designs of students in the
K-State Landscape Architecture department and a new plaque, seating and
study tables were added.
