Gerald Ford statue dedicated at University of Michigan
ANN ARBOR, Michigan. (AP) - The University of Michigan is home to a new statue of one of its most famous alumni, President Gerald Ford.
Former National Security Adviser Brent Scowcroft helped dedicate the Ford statue Tuesday in Ann Arbor.
The bronze statue created by sculptor J. Brett Grill now stands in the Great Hall at the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy.
It's a scale model of the statue of Ford that stands in the National Statuary Hall of the Capitol Rotunda.
Grill is a Michigan alumnus and Grand Rapids native. He attended Tuesday's dedication ceremony along with Ford's son, Michael, and members of the Ford School and U-M communities.
