BRICK DEDICATION CEREMONY AND MEMORIAL HONOR ROLL

10 a.m. – Donor Brick Walkway 

The Texas Wesleyan Donor Brick Walkway is located in the heart of campus just outside the Eunice and James West Library. Since 1990, the walkway has been a much-loved tradition and an unique way to leave a legacy as well as honor loved ones, family members and friends by personal inscriptions that line the walkway.

Be a part of this meaningful program as we show our appreciation for university donors and remember those we’ve lost over the year. You’ll see the newest additions to the Donor Brick Walkway and learn more about how alumni and friends can leave their mark through this TXWES tradition.

We also honor the following faculty and staff who retired in the past year:

  • Elizabeth Battles, Language & Literature
  • Mary Anne Clark, Biology
  • Joyce Davidson, University Advancement
  • Joseph Dryden, Education
  • John Fisher, Music
  • Gina Phillips ’97, MS ’07, University Advancement

Join us at the Brick Dedication and share your congratulations and best wishes to our fantastic retired faculty and staff!
