Brick-by-brick: Fundraiser seeks cash for complex

Published 1:24 pm Thursday, October 16, 2014

It’s a chance for residents to add their personal stamp to a new sports complex, one brick at a time.
‘It’ is the Elizabethton City School System’s sale of personalized brick pavers to help pay for the new Elizabethton High School athletic complex.
Assistant Superintendent Richard VanHuss said the project has just begun. The pavers will be available in two sizes: 4 inches by 8 inches and 8 inches by 8 inches. The pavers can be personalized with up to three lines of text, and will be installed in the entrance plaza at the new complex.
“The biggest thing is this gives anyone the opportunity to be a part of this project,” VanHuss said. “Not everyone can make a large contribution to the project. The bricks are a way for anyone who wants to be involved to participate. We feel the prices are substantial enough to help but also accessible to most people.”
The 4-inch by 8-inch bricks are $100 and the 8-inch by 8-inch bricks are $250.
Although the brick project has just started, VanHuss said the effort has already gained the attention of one EHS graduating class. The EHS Class of 1973 is challenging all other graduating classes to participate in the brick paver project.
The class raised $1,073 for the stadium project and is issuing a challenge for other graduating classes to do the same.
