Texas A&M University-Texarkana will unveil the first phase of its new Eagle Landing walkway at a dedication ceremony Tuesday, May 2, at 4 p.m. in front of the University Center on the Texas A&M University-Texarkana campus, 7101 University Ave., Texarkana, Texas.
The A&M-Texarkana Alumni Association kicked off its Eagle Landing program last year to raise funds for scholarships by offering alumni, family members, faculty, staff and friends of the university an opportunity to sponsor an engraved brick in the walkway leading to the University Center entrance.
“For almost 30 years, the Alumni Association has worked to generate much-needed funding for scholarships for students at A&M-Texarkana,” said Mark Missildine with the A&M-Texarkana Alumni Relations office. “Donations to the Eagle Landing program represent an investment in the future of A&M-Texarkana students and their families.”
Orders are taken year-round, and bricks will be installed annually. Cost is $100 per brick.
“Through participation in the Eagle Landing program, alumni and friends of the university have an opportunity to change lives,” said Eric Cain, president of the A&M-Texarkana Alumni Association Board of Directors. “We hope each and every alumnus and friend of the university will want to be a part of this ambitious effort to leave a legacy for the future.”
The dedication ceremony and brick program are open to the public.
