(2)  Badger Bricks Honoring All Veterans / Walkway of Honor

If you went to Tucson High School and served in the military, you could have your name in bricks.

The Tucson High Badger Foundation wants to expand its Walkway of Honor to include engraved bricks for veterans from the school’s entire 117-year history, including the past 99 years at its current location on Sixth Street and Euclid Avenue.

Each brick costs $150, with the proceeds benefiting the foundation’s endowment fund.

Thanks to “some generous donors,” Strutz said, the foundation has some money available to subsidize the cost of a brick for families that might need assistance.

Anyone, living or dead, who attended the school and served in the armed forces is eligible for the Walkway of Honor. You don’t need to be a graduate of the school, and you don’t need to have served in the military during wartime.

The foundation hopes to dedicate the next round of bricks for veterans during a ceremony on or around Veterans Day in 2024.

For information on ordering a military brick, please contact:  Jerry Strutz, Badger Foundation Chairman, at jstrutz1@cox.net   or Judy Mares Redmond, Veteran Tribute Committee Chair, at badgerfoundation.vatribute@gmail.com
