Brick Campaign

Pave the Way


Southern Prep’s “Pave the Way” Brick Campaign is a way to recognize and honor the men and women who have made an impact throughout the world. These personalized brick pavers can be ordered for alumni, parents, grandparents, teachers, mentors, community members, friends, and businesses.  When you order a brick in honor of someone, a recognition of your gift will be sent to the honoree or the family of the person memorialized. 


Each brick is placed in front of Tallapoosa Hall and will become a part of Southern Prep’s Walk of Honor.  Please view the photo gallery below to see walkway plans. 


All bricks are engraved using a state of the art laser technology to ensure strength and durability for years to come. 
$125– 4×8 paver, 3 lines of personalization, 16-18 characters per line
$250– 8×8 paver, 6 lines of personalization, 16-18 characters per line


The sale and purchase of these bricks will forever preserve your contribution to the traditions of Southern Preparatory Academy, Lyman Ward Military Academy, and Southern Industrial Institute, and is tax deductible as allowed by law. All proceeds will go to the Annual Fund for special projects, cadet scholarships, and financial assistance.
