Honor a Service Member
The College of Health and Human Performance announces an exciting project to raise funds for ROTC Army and Air Force Scholarships.
Be among the first to purchase a personalized commemorative brick in honor of any veteran service of East Carolina University's faculty, staff, students, or friends. Your engraved brick paver will become part of the Memorial Walk located west of Christenbury Memorial Gymnasium.
Your decorative brick paver will be engraved with your selected name or phrase and will become a lasting tribute, paving the way for generations to come. Each engraved 6 by 9 inches paver can be purchased for $125.*
There are two ways to purchase a brick paver:
- Download the brochure to print and mail in with payment.
- Complete the online form and call in your payment
Post's Nursery has generously agreed to sponsor this campaign by donating the pavers. Jim Post, owner, operates the business in Rolesville, North Carolina and specializes in landscape design and installation.
* $100 is tax deductible. *$25 covers engraving costs.
FAQ: Memorial Walk Brick Paver Campaign
Q: Do you have to be deceased to be recognized?
A: No, the Memorial Walk accepts pavers for living and deceased nominees.
Q: Do you have to have served in the military to have a stone?

Q: Can a person purchase their own paver?

A: You may. We encourage a link with ECU so if you are a faculty, staff, student, or ECU supporter, you may purchase a paver to honor anyone with whom you have an associationâ€Šfamily member, friend.
Q: Can a paver purchase be done in an anonymous fashion?
Q: Is there any limit to the number of pavers a single person can purchase?
