Three weeks ago, Charles Ramsey lived the quiet life of a restaurant dishwasher on Cleveland’s Seymour Avenue. On Friday, he’ll get his own statue in Kentucky.
Ramsey has an appearance at the Stanville, Kentucky law firm of Eric C. Conn. According to a news release promoting the event, Conn, who is known for his love of statues, commissioned a statue of Ramsey, which will be unveiled.
“I can’t think of a better way to commend my friend Charles than having a statue made in his honor,” Conn said in the release.
Ramsey rocketed to Internet stardom on May 6 following his role in the rescue of three Cleveland women missing in some cases for over a decade.
“The sculptor has decided to depict Ramsey as he was on the day he became a hero,” the news release read. The unnamed sculptor is quoted as saying “The most difficult part of make the statue is sculpting Ramsey’s unique hair style.”
The meet-and-greet and statue unveiling will take place at Conn’s Law firm on U.S. 23 in Friday from noon until 2 p.m.
