Albany Tech Foundation, Inc. Breaks Ground on “Wall of Giving”

August 13, 2013- Albany, Ga.--  Albany Technical College will officially break ground on its new "Wall of Giving" on Wednesday, August 14, 2013, at 10am, on the grounds south of the Nathaniel Cross Health Care Technology Building.

The Wall of Giving is one of the final pieces of the campus master plan that was developed prior to a recently ended capital campaign and will be a way to recognize donors. The garden concept with an engraved brick walkway evolved to a wall that better blends with the rest of the campus. The Wall of Giving will allow Albany Tech masonry students to construct a lasting memory of their student days here at Albany Tech as they build on the masonry skills.

In addition to the masonry students actually building the wall, the rendering for the Wall of Giving was created by students in the drafting technology program at Albany Tech. With workforce development being one of the primary objectives at Albany Tech, this project provided a means for students in these two programs to work on a "Real World" project that would last for many years to come. In 2010, drafting students designed a campus marquee, which was later constructed by Albany Tech masonry students.

New donors will be able to have their names or the names of their businesses and organizations engraved onto the many bricks that make up the Wall of Giving. This project will earmark a capital campaign for the college, which will be followed by a golf tournament in October and a Roast in the spring of 2014.

To purchase a brick, donors may contact Joe Najjar with the Albany Tech Foundation at 229.430.6624 or email jnajjar@albanytech.edu.
