Paving the Way Begins

Brick by brick, a student-led scholarship drive is building opportunities for future Red Raiders.

Development

Paving the Way to Success Walkway Construction on the Pathway to Success Scholarship walkway is underway at Memorial Circle. A dedication ceremony is planned for April 2007.

Construction is well underway for a walkway leading from the Administration building to the center of Pfluger Fountain in Memorial Circle.

The Scholarship Walkway to Success campaign is a student-led scholarship campaign spear-headed by the Texas Tech Student Government Association. The main objective is to increase merit and opportunity scholarships that are used to recruit students to Texas Tech. Each gift of $1,000 is commemorated with engraved bricks along the walkway.

Endowment gifts above $10,000 and at the $100,000 levels will be commemorated with much larger pavement sections of two different sizes. Endowment gifts can be used for university merit and opportunity scholarship endowments or for scholarships to any college or program.

In the past year $1.5 million has been raised toward the $5 million dollar goal. Of that, $4 million will establish an endowment to keep the scholarship program growing for future Red Raiders. The remaining amount will have an immediate impact on current students.

A special donor recognition event is planned for April 2007.
