Family halts stadium naming

CRESTVIEW—Members of the family of late city Parks and Recreation worker Nathaniel Grant requested that city officials halt a process that would have named the Twin Hills Park stadium in his memory. Grant died in the summer of 2011. At city Councilman Tim Grandberry’s recommendation, the facility was scheduled to be named Nathaniel Grant Stadium.

“While our family appreciates the gesture of naming the football stadium at Twin Hills Park after my husband, Nathaniel, we feel it best to rescind your request,” Miranda Grant wrote in an email to Public Works Director Wayne Steele.

“There are so many deserving families for this honor,” Grant’s email stated. “Maybe the stadium could be dedicated in general to all the deserving members that have passed on.”

The Crestview City Council unanimously approved Miranda Grant’s request with its approval of the consent agenda at Monday’s meeting.
