Memorial Brick Walk Challenge Announced
If you graduated in the 80s, this is for you! Dr. Charles Johnson-Bey '84 was awarded the 2018 Distinguished Alumni Award from the Baltimore Polytechnic Institute Alumni Association. In his acceptance speech he offered a challenge to all of the classes of the 1980's (1980 - 1989) to have their classmates purchase 100 bricks minimum per class to honor themselves, Poly faculty, or administration. The concept is to have a minimum of 100 bricks installed, all at the same time, for each class.
