Philanthropist honored with life-sized sculpture by artist he never met

Saige Baxter is an artist – a painter, sculptor, and welder. But even more than that, she is an advocate for many positive things in life. Much of her work stems from goodness and charity. So it was not a huge surprise when she created a sculpture in honor of Jennings Womack, a philanthropist from Greensburg. Baxter spent almost a whole year preparing and crafting the sculpture to honor the late Womack. Although they never knew each other in real life, Baxter felt as if she already met him by talking to those close to him.

The sculpture was officially unveiled outside the Jennings Womack Fitness Center. It was the final touch that closed the recent renovation done to the facility. It is located at Greensburg Salem High School. Before Womack died, renovations were already underway. And although the sculpture came as a posthumous honor, it definitely encapsulated what the community felt for the philanthropist. The artist made the sculpture so that it evokes the image of a mountain, signifying Womack’s role in the community – for he was truly their rock. Now, every child and adult that passes by or goes inside the center will be reminded of Womack’s life and legacy.
