On March 12, Welch College President Matt Pinson led a dedication ceremony for a brick walkway installed with over 700 engraved bricks given in honor and memory of Welch supporters, according to David Williford, Vice President for Institutional Advancement.
The brick walkway is located on the quad side of the Welch library at Coffman Hall where all can enjoy looking for the name or names of loved ones memorialized or honored. “We are delighted at the response to the Pave the Way campaign,” Williford said. “The bricks honor those who have paved the way for current and future students to enjoy the new Welch campus.”
Many churches and Women Active for Christ groups purchased bricks to show support for students from their area. The Advancement office placed a brick for every 2018 Welch graduate and plans to do this for the 2019 graduates as well.
If you missed the opportunity to place a brick in this first installation, Welch is offering a special promotion of Buy One/Get One ½ Price. The bricks are $250 regular price. Contact Merinda Parrish (615-675-5360 or email firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
