Now that football season is here, Newton County School System is resuming the popular Homer Sharp Stadium Brick Program to benefit the Newton County Foundation for Educational Excellence and the three high school athletic programs.
Homer Sharp Stadium is one the community's most well-known landmarks. Since its construction in 1956, Newton County's high school athletes and the fans who cheered them on have made unforgettable memories at Homer Sharp Stadium - memories that reflect the district's tradition of Spirit, Pride and Excellence.
Residents have a unique opportunity not only to be a permanent part of that history but also to support both the high school athletic programs and the Newton County Foundation for Educational Excellence at the same time by purchasing a paver brick. In recognition of a gift of $30, Newton County Schools will engrave your message on a paver brick, which will become a permanent part of the Homer Sharp Stadium interior landscape.
The engraved paver bricks will be located on a raised concrete area inside the Homer Sharp Stadium and the school system will donate all proceeds from the sale of these bricks to the Newton County Foundation for Educational Excellence and the athletic programs of Alcovy, Eastside and Newton high schools. Due to the popularity of the program, there is only space for 47 more paver bricks.
By purchasing a paver, residents can commemorate and pay tribute to a favorite former or current high school athlete, student or educator, or honor a special relative, friend, business or organization. Pavers would make a fitting gift to a high school sports enthusiast or memorial for a loved one who has passed away.
The brick pavers cost $30 and the donation is tax deductible. Pavers are 4"x8" and may hold up to three lines of text with 14 characters permitted per line. All text will be standard size, font and style. Greek letters and other symbols not found on a standard keyboard may not be used. Messages will be centered automatically in uppercase letters. Please note that the Newton County School System reserves the right to approve all text prior to production.
Pavers may be purchased with cash, check, or money order at the Newton County Board of Education. Order forms may be downloaded from the Newton County School System website at newtoncountyschools.org and mailed to the address below:
