Personalized bricks make excellent OPSU graduation gifts

By Charmen Rider on 04/15/2014 Goodwell, Okla. — With graduation just around the corner, many people are looking for graduation gifts for friends and family members who will be graduating from Oklahoma Panhandle State University. Panhandle State Foundation has an unusual and thoughtful gift idea - a personalized brick!

The standard size brick can be personalized using up to three lines of text consisting of 18 characters each (spacing and punctuation are considered a character). Numbers may be used. All text will be automatically centered on the brick regardless of how it is submitted on the form. If you use UPPER CASE or lower case, the text will be laser engraved in UPPER CASE or lower case. Bricks will be placed at the east end of the OPSU Science and Ag Building until full and then in a space determined by the OPSU president. The personalized brick order form is available to download on the OPSU website at personalized brick order form or can be mailed to you by calling 580-349-1392. Here are some brick examples:

Jane Doe Cheerleader Elem. Ed. 2014

MATT JONES AGRONOMY- FB LIBERAL, KS 2014

Mary Smith Guymon, OK Class of 2014

Personalized bricks are available for $50.00 each. Please submit the name and address of person you would like notified of the gift and we will send them a brick gift notification stating the brick inscription and the donor. Brick purchases are considered tax-deductible and any excess funds will be used in support of the Panhandle State Foundation's mission of supporting Oklahoma Panhandle State University and OPSU students. Personalized bricks make great birthday gifts and are also a thoughtful way to honor or memorialize friends, family members or OPSU alumni. Feel free to contact the Foundation Office for more information at the above listed number or 1-800-664-6778 ext. 1392.
