 "Great Foundation Wall"

Foundation Wall

The wall, erected near Macdonald Hall on the OJC campus, will be covered with 4 by 8 inch bricks inscribed with names, graduating years and/or job titles. Bricks are available to OJC alumni, faculty, staff, retirees, advisory council members and foundation board members.

A donation of $150 or more to the OJC Foundation will provide the donor with a brick on the wall. Each can be inscribed with up to three lines of text featuring 19 characters/spaces per line. A limited number of bricks are available, so order yours today!  

You can order two ways, download, fill out and return the Order Form, or by secure online payment through PayPal.
