Sculpture of Former Glassboro Mayor Alvin Shpeen Donated to Town Square by Demountable Concepts, Inc

The sculpture features a life-sized, steel silhouette of the former mayor who was instrumental in bringing Glassboro and Rowan University together to revitalize the town. The mayor was also a Philadelphia Phillies fan who attended the Phillies Phantasy Camp, so he’s portrayed at bat, forever ready to hit the next pitch. There’s a bronze plaque in the shape of home plate with a brief inscription on how Mayor Shpeen set a positive example and contributed to improving Glassboro’s downtown.

“Former Glassboro Mayor, Alvin Shpeen’s dedication and vision created the groundwork for our revitalization and what has become the new standard in suburban living and a model for cities nationwide,” said Glassboro Councilman John E. Wallace III. “That is why this statue belongs in this location, directly across from his previous office -- to remind us, no matter how much we have to overcome, just what it is that leadership requires; just what it is that citizenship requires. Alvin Shpeen would have turned 87 years old this July. We do well by placing a statue of him here. But we can do no greater honor to his memory than to carry forward the power of his vision and a dedication to our residents.”
