City street will be dedicated to Uceny

August 2, 2012

Sophie Polando, 5, paints the windows of Pizza Bill's Wednesday morning. She was part of a team organized by Plymouth resident Patti Girten with the goal to decorate downtown in honor of Morgan Uceny. A group of about 80 people, mostly children, painted windows of businesses and hung flags and ribbons.

PLYMOUTH — Mayor Mark Senter announced this week that Randolph Street near Plymouth High School will be temporarily renamed “Morgan Uceny Run” in a public ceremony Friday at 3 p.m.
“(Uceny) was a big part of Plymouth High School and a big part of our community,” said Senter. “What better place than right there near the park, Greenways Trail, and the high school?”
Senter plans to read a proclamation prior to unveiling the street sign created in Uceny’s honor.
“It’s so rare for an athlete of this caliber to come out of a city the size of Plymouth,” noted Senter.
The sign is red and white on one side, and blue and white on the other side. It will remain in place for one week, then will be given to Uceny at a later time. Members of the public planning to attend this ceremony should park in the Plymouth High School parking lot. The ceremony will take place on the corner of Baker and Randolph Streets.
For safety reasons, the following streets will be closed for the ceremony, which is expected to last about half an hour: Baker Street at Fairbanks, Randolph Street at Becknell Drive, Randolph Street just south of Baker Street, and Baker Street at the entrance to the Soccerplex.
With questions, contact the mayor’s office at 574-936-6717.
