Peninsula College’s athletic complex was dedicated to Wally Sigmar on Tuesday during a ceremony that both honored and immortalized the college’s late president.

About 300 friends, colleagues and family members attended the dedication of the Wally Sigmar Athletic Complex, which includes a gym, tennis courts and expanded and improved soccer and softball fields.

Sigmar was responsible for Peninsula College’s return to intercollegiate athletic competition.

“This is the culmination of a dream Wally had for our college and our community,” Peninsula College Foundation Director George Wood said during the ceremony.

Many of Sigmar’s dreams for the college came true before his cancer-related death last June at the age of 53, leaving a legacy of accomplishments during a six-year tenure as the college’s fourth president, Wood said.
