WACU museum paves the way to the Centennial by honoring ACU history

For immediate release
Dec. 3, 2004

Women for Abilene Christian University is reaching the end of its second year of a fundraising campaign that honors past and present ACU faculty, staff and board members with paved bricks around the Jennings House Museum.

The project, which continues through 2005, began as a landscape beautification project for the museum, but now is a way to honor past and present ACU faculty, staff and board members for their achievements and contributions to the university.

“Our goal is to have the project completed for the university’s Centennial celebration so that all the visitors on campus can enjoy the walkway and recognize the contributions of so many great men and women during the past 100 years,” said Kay McGlothlin, a founding member of the Women for ACU.

Family members, former students, or anyone who has been touched by one of the “historical greats of ACU” may purchase a brick to be laid on the museum grounds in their honor, McGlothlin said.

Each brick costs $100 and is inscribed with the person’s name on it. Women for ACU will then notify the person, or their family members, to let them know that someone one has donated a brick in their name to the museum.

“We still have a lot of bricks that need to be added,” McGlothlin said. “There are still so many great people who have worked to better ACU who need to be recognized.”

The Women for ACU Museum provides a visual history of ACU with a collection of portraits, personal belongings, and books of people who have been influential in the university’s history. The museum is located on the corner of E.N. 16th and Campus Court.

To inquire about purchasing a brick, contact Vivian Clark, treasurer of the Women for ACU, at 325-672-1040.
