BOILING SPRINGS, N.C.—Was your father a football or baseball player? Did you major in nursing or business? Is your mother a divinity school graduate? Gardner-Webb University is offering alumni and supporters an opportunity to show their support by etching their names on a brick placed near a building that has special memories for them.

By purchasing a personalized memorial brick, donors can show their Runnin’ Bulldog pride or choose to honor or memorialize a loved one. At the same time, their contributions fund scholarships for students through the GWU 2020 Priority Fund.

“Supporting scholarships is always important,” noted Sara L. McCall, assistant vice president of advancement services and operations. “The bricks give donors a chance to honor a loved one, a favorite professor or to just leave their mark on campus while providing much-needed scholarships.”

Contributors can choose to display their bricks at one of nine campus locations:

  • Dover Chapel
  • Frank and Flossie Bonner Football Complex
  • Godbold School of Business
  • College of Health Sciences
  • John Henry Moss Stadium
  • Noel Center
  • School of Divinity
  • Tucker Student Center
  • Webb Hall

Bricks are $250 each, and each one will be able to fit up to three lines with 18 maximum characters per line. All lettering will be the same text size.
