The Bexley High School Alumni Piazza and Walkway in the front of Bexley High School provides the perfect way to honor a graduating Bexley senior, alumnus, class mate or favorite teacher or coach. BEF manages the engraved brick and paver sales and does two installations each year, spring and fall.
Last year, the BEF installed 82 bricks and pavers and one bench in the Alumni Piazza and Walkway. Benches are often purchased as a class gift. The walkway and piazza were dedicated on July 4, 1996 and since that time, the piazza has become a favorite gathering place for Bexley students. Classes will often gather there, and it is a popular lunch spot on sunny days. On high school graduation day, graduating seniors are often photographed in their caps and gowns by their bricks.
Engraved red bricks, which provide two lines for engraving, can be purchased for $100. Larger, gray limestone pavers, which provide for four lines of engraving and are placed inside the piazza, are $500. The 2019 spring installation is quickly approaching! The deadline to purchase a brick or paver to be installed in time for this year’s Bexley High School graduation ceremony is Friday, April 5.
