PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - South Dakota is set to unveil three more bronze statues of its former governors during an event in the state Capitol rotunda.

Former Govs. Warren E. Green, Nils A. Boe and M. Michael Rounds are the newest additions in the Trail of Governors series. The sculptures will be unveiled Friday.

Current Gov. Dennis Daugaard is set to participate in the event with Rounds, now a sitting U.S. senator.

The statues will join others on the trail that goes through Pierre and the Capitol’s grounds. It features a dozen statues now, with three commissioned each year by the trail’s nonprofit foundation using individual and business donations.
