SGA BEGINS “PAVING” THE SIDEWALK TO STUDENT SUCCESS
LUBBOCK -- Texas Tech’s Student Government Association broke ground Friday on its tribute to donors in the Paving the Way to Student Success scholarship campaign.
The ambitious, student-led drive seeks $5 million for new merit and opportunity student scholarships by allowing donors to purchase a brick with the donor’s name on it. The bricks, highlighting three levels of giving, will be placed in a sidewalk leading from the Administration Building to Memorial Circle.
“These bricks will serve as a permanent tribute to the donor’s generosity in the heart of Texas Tech’s picturesque campus,” said Ryan Worley, president of the Student Government Association.
Three levels of giving – Distinguished, at $1,000 or more; Leadership, at $10,000 or more; and Excellence, at $100,000 or more – are recognized.
The campaign, launched in November, has raised more than $1.5 million to this point.
