“The Legacy Continues” Centennial Brick Campaign

Brick Update 08-08-19.jpg

It all started in 1919……

The Apprentice School Foundation’s “The Legacy Continues” Centennial Brick Campaign is part of The Apprentice School’s Centennial Celebration.  For 100 years the school has produced over 10,000 graduates that have provided Newport News Shipbuilding with some of the finest shipbuilders and community leaders in Hampton Roads.  While proud of the past success, we continue to look to the future.

The Apprentice School Foundation is excited to provide an opportunity for friends of the school, alumni and apprentices to participate in the Continuing the Legacy Centennial Brick Campaign. When making a donation of $125 (4x8) or $250 (8x8) a personalized brick will be displayed on the plaza in front of The Apprentice School. You can also purchase a small memorabilia of an exact replica of your brick. A replica of a 4x8 brick is 1.5x3 inches ($25) while an 8x8 is 3x3 inches ($30). It can be used as a paperweight, add a magnet to the back and place it on their refrigerator or simply use it as a conversation piece. Replicas may only be ordered with purchase of full-size brick.

This can be your way to leave a permanent legacy and support the vision and mission of the Foundation. Proceeds from the brick program will support scholarships, historic preservation of the school, The Apprentice School Students Association and underrepresented and financially constrained youth of the Hampton Roads Region.

The first brick order was submitted to the vendor on September 6, 2019. The vendor’s tentative shipping date is on or before October 18, 2019 with installation planned for early November 2019. Bricks ordered after September 6 will be installed in the spring of 2020.
