Join the Next Century Campaign

As Grady College moves into its next century, we invite alumni, parents of students, corporate partners and friends to leave their mark by purchasing an inscription on one of the granite pavers lining the plaza walkway and patio area along the Grady lawn.

The Next Century Campaign is drive to support the preservation and beautification of the plaza area in front of the building. This natural extension of the Peyton Anderson Forum will provide students and others an even more attractive setting for one of Grady’s greatest assets: its location on campus and lush green lawn in front of the building.

Several levels of support are available. Inscriptions purchased by or honoring students are $100. Alumni inscriptions are $150. Each 3’x 3′ paver holds up to 12 names. For design purposes, no text other than names and graduation years will be permitted on the pavers. Pavers featuring corporate names or logos are available for $2500.
