Paving the Way for
THE TIFFANY LEGACY Memorial Brick Project at Seattle Pacific University has raised nearly $60,000 to date — $15,000 in the last 16 months — for an endowment to support Alumni Association Scholarships. As part of the project, individuals and families purchase historic bricks from the former Tiffany Hall and inscribe them with a personal message for future placement in a walkway at SPU.
And the best news, says Alumni Director Doug Taylor, is that three students, out of a record 67 applicants, will this year share $13,000 in scholarships provided by the endowment. All three are descendants of Seattle Pacific alumni. “They are just the sort of outstanding people who make us want to seek funds for these scholarships,” he says.
This year’s recipients? Entering freshman Sarah Barton leads the kindergarten kids at church each Sunday and plans to major in biology. Her grandfather Charles Anderson is a former SPU trustee. Junior Michelle Hart is a psychology major who leads a summer junior high group at a Christian school. Her father, mother, and maternal grandparents were all Falcons. Senior family and consumer sciences major Jessica Liddle led children’s ministries at her church for five years. Her grandfather majored in English at Seattle Pacific.
