Westminster College will host a dedication ceremony for the college's new Kent and Judith Mueller Stadium and Vicki Mueller Memorial Plaza today before the Blue Jays football game against the Greenville University Panthers.

Individuals from all areas of Westminster will be present for the ceremony.

Donald Lofe, Jr., Westminster president and chief transformation officer, will attend alongside student-athletes from all varsity sports, cheerleaders, ROTC members, and other college officials, a Westminster release states.

They will join together to honor the family of Kent, who graduated in 1962, and Judith Mueller of Paradise Valley, Arizona.

The ceremony will honor the family's legacy at Westminster and the life of their daughter, Vicki Mueller, who died in 2020.

Construction on the stadium began in the fall of 2022. The new stadium features expanded seating in the stands, a press box, a concession stand and a ticket stand.

Today's ceremony will also mark the beginning of the 2023 Westminster homecoming football game.

Homecoming royalty will be announced during halftime, as will inductees to the 2023 Blue Jays Hall of Fame.

The dedication ceremony will begin at 11:30 a.m. Kickoff for the football game will be at noon.

Attendance to Westminster home games is free.

The Kent and Judith Mueller Stadium and Vicki Mueller Memorial Plaza is located on the corner of Seventh Street and Hickman Avenue on Westminster's campus.

Parking for the game and ceremony will be available throughout Seventh Street and Westminster Avenue.

The ceremony is part of Westminster's family weekend, which began Friday. For more information on family weekend activities, visit wcmo.edu/family/weekend.html.
