Special Thanks to Joe Bowen of Powell County whose vision, dedication, and perseverance made these memorials to Governor Combs a reality.

We also thank KY Representative Richard Henderson for introducing House Joint Resolution 84 that allowed the placement of the Stanton statue on state property. The Bill passed unanimously in both House and Senate. Thanks to Senator Tom Jensen for bringing the bill before the Senate and for Senators Julian Carroll and Robert Stivers for speaking so eloquently in its behalf.

Another tip-of-the-hat to Floyd Clay Anderson for help, problem solving, and advice throughout the entire project.

The following list of people and organizations contributed to the Governor Bert T. Combs Memorial Statue located in Stanton, KY. Furthermore, they generously contributed the artwork valued at $35,000 so that a second statue could be built. Now, a third statue is located in the city of Manchester, KY.

These names are inscribed on a bronze plaque on the front of the rockwork display which is located directly behind the statue. Thank you.

Special Thanks to Joe Bowen of Powell County whose vision, dedication, and perseverance made these memorials to Governor Combs a reality.
