On September 14, 2023, the town of Manchester, CT dedicated a statue honoring educator Elisabeth M. Bennet. The statue is the second of three that sculptor Michael Keropian, FNSS is creating for the town.
Keropian says, “I am honored to have had the opportunity to research and bring to life in my creative and humble way a sculptural tribute to Elisabeth M. Bennet for my hometown. When generations of children attend the Bennet Academy or pass by the sculpture on Main Street,they will always know who their school is named after and hopefully be interested in learning more about her contributions to the town and to education.”
