DORA — A sentimental project is underway at Dora High School.
For the second year, alumni and current students have had an opportunity to purchase bricks that will be inscribed and placed outside the school.
More than 60 bricks are displayed on school grounds near the entrance as part of the surrounding landscape. Engraved are the names of alumni and some are even engraved with the Bulldog mascot or paw prints.
Through Labor Day, bricks can be purchased in two sizes: a 4 inch by 8 inch for $25 or an 8 inch by 8 inch for $50. Pricing includes the brick, laser engraving and personalization.
"I've had people from as far away as North Carolina contact me to purchase a brick," Principal Paige Abner said. "A lot of people purchase them in memory of someone that was close to them that went to school here. It's just generated a lot of interest."
Abner said that since the first batch of bricks has been installed, people have been stopping by the school to take pictures of the bricks they purchased.
Brick sales generated an estimated $2,500 last year.
"It's generated a lot of conversation," Abner said. "They are just beautiful over there — really proud of them."
People may stop by Dora High to pick up a brick order form or an order form may be requested through messenger on the Dora High School Facebook page.
"Everything is publicized on our Facebook page. It's a very active page that I keep information going on all the time," Abner said.
