Inside the courtyard of the War Memorial Auditorium is the Youth Statue (also called Victory). The impressive bronze is depicted holding a sword and laurel wreath in one hand and Nike in the other. Nike is the Greek goddess of victory. The Youth Statue was created by native daughter Belle Kinney Scholz. She also created the Women of the Confederacy statue on the property. Scholz was a prolific sculptor of statues and busts of famous Tennessee politicians during her career in the first half of the 20th century.
