With about half of the bricks for the first section of the Western Carolina University Catamount Legacy Walk commissioned, facilitators are expanding publicity efforts in hopes of having the first section installed before spring commencement.
A fundraiser for a student emergency fund, the Catamount Legacy Walk honors each $125, tax-deductible donation with a 4-by-8-inch, reddish-orange brick paver to be engraved with a customized message from the donor and installed on campus.
Eighty percent of each Catamount Legacy Walk donation goes directly to the student emergency fund, with the remaining amount used for maintenance of the walk and Alumni Tower.
About 50 bricks have been commissioned for the Catamount Legacy Walk so far.
