Tampa to unveil six new Riverwalk monuments Tuesday

TAMPA — Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn will today unveil the next half dozen monuments that will line the historical trail through the city's Riverwalk.

The six bronze and marble busts will honor some of "Tampa's greats," whom city officials described as noteworthy people and events shaping the history of Tampa and Hillsborough County.

In April, Buckhorn and members of Friends of the Riverwalk introduced the trail's second set of honorees. They are Florida Sentinel Bulletin publisher C. Blythe Andrews, Fowler White's Cody Fowler, activist and author Kate Jackson, Holland & Knight's Peter O. Knight, Cuban independence leader Paulina Pedroso and insurance executive and philanthropist G.D. Rogers.

Their busts will be unveiled at 11 a.m. near the Tampa Convention Center on the Riverwalk. Eventually, more than 30 people and historic events will be honored with monuments.
