Order Lion Shrine bricks now for spring installation; great gift for new grads

Lion Shrine Bricks
"A Pathway to the Future"
12/1/2011 —



The Penn State New Kensington Office of Development is taking orders for engraved bricks for the Nittany Lion Shrine on campus.

Orders placed by Dec. 17 will be installed in the spring. The bricks make excellent gifts for December graduates. Parents and spouses of new graduates can leave a legacy for them and build a path to the future with an engraved brick that leads to campus' Lion Shrine. Penn Staters also can give their spouses and parents a big "thank you" that will last forever.

The special bricks form the border of the herringbone-style pathway on the right and left side of the shrine. Engraved bricks replace plain bricks on an ongoing basis. More than 200 of the 1,200 bricks in the two pathways have been engraved.

The Heinz Warneke sculpture sits on a natural monolithic sandstone block in a cove of spruce trees, shrubs, ornamental grasses, seasonal plants, and perennials. The base of the shrine is surrounded by flagstone slabs filled in with other ornamental grasses.

Bricks can be purchased in two sizes: 8 x 4" for $75; 8 x 8" for $150.

To order a brick or for information on Investing in People, contact Donna Speer, director of development,
