Pavers will be located outside of the Wilma M. Sherrill Center, the “front porch” of UNC Asheville, and along Alumni Walk near the Justice Center.  Over 200,000 guests have visited the facility in the two years since opening, which means your gift and message will be a legacy certain to be viewed by many.

Each 12” X 12” paver can be engraved with up to three lines and 20 characters per line.  For only $230 you can mark your place in the history of UNC Asheville while supporting unrestricted scholarships.  Your gift will give current and future students the opportunity to pave their own way to excellence.
