VIDEO: A permanent place for alumni
Tuesday, August 16, 2016
Fredonia alumni can now have a piece of their beloved campus forever. The first installation of the Scholarship Brick Walkway has been completed outside the Williams Center.
“The intention was to build some more heritage and pride in Fredonia,” said Patty Feraldi, director of Alumni Affairs. “The money raised from the purchase of these bricks will add to our endowment, and many more students will be able to benefit from a Fredonia education.”
Alumni affairs has sold 142 bricks in two different sizes so far. The first round of approximately 60 bricks were installed in August. Bricks can be purchased anytime; the next installation will take place in the summer of 2017.
Graduates, family, and friends, all inscribed their name and class year on a brick. There were also examples of friends who collaborated on a single brick. Some commemorated a special occasion such as a graduation or retirement, while others memorialized a member of the Fredonia community.
