The McGahee family shares their “Eagle Tradition” Brick testimony

“Our family has become a true Eagle Nation family.  All three of our daughters have attended or are attending GSU.  Our daughter Kelly was the first to come to GSU and she received her degree in Public Relations.  Her younger sister, Rebecca, followed a couple of years later, and is earning a degree in Early Childhood Education.  Our oldest daughter, Mary Frances, decided to attend GSU for her Master’s in Early Childhood Education.  For a period of time, all three of our daughters were Georgia Southern students.  We also had a special person in our life who was like a son to us, and tragically died at the beginning of his junior year at GSU.  Blake Shurling was an Eagle from a very young age, and loved everything about GSU.  We count these four young Georgia Southern students as very special blessings, and are glad to have this opportunity to honor them.”

Kyla Dickson honors a friend and shares her Brick Testimony

“Lauren was the first person I met when I chose Georgia Southern University as my home for the next four years.  We met on Facebook in the Class of 2017 Georgia Southern University group, and always joked that this was one of the best online relationships we ever had.  It was true though, we really had a special friendship, Lauren and I.  From the first time I met Lauren I knew there was something about her I liked.  That like turned into love and that love turned into one of the best friendships I could ask for.  Even though we only had three years together, I am thankful for the impact she had on my life.  This brick is a dedication to you Lauren for all the laughs, tears, hugs, and memories we shared here at Eagle Nation.  Thank you girly.”

Alumna Brittany Parham shares her Brick Testimony

“Since coming to Georgia Southern in summer of 2004 as a high school junior, I fell in love with the campus and had my sights set on coming here for college. My parents purchased my brick as a surprise since they bought my sister one when she graduated from her University. When I received the small brick I immediately put it in my office along with all of my other mementos from my years here at Georgia Southern, my lantern from the Lantern Walk and my Graduation tassel. It is nice to know that no matter where I go in life there will always be a small part of me represented here on campus!”

Alumna Samantha May shares her Brick Testimony

“My parents purchased a brick for me as part of a graduation present. I received the mini replica in the mail, but had always wanted to find the time to see the real brick on the Georgia Southern campus. I finally went back a year and a half later, and found my personalized brick. This brick is a timeless gift.  Georgia Southern University made a huge impact on my life, and it is really special to know that there will  forever be a small piece of “me” embedded on this beautiful campus!”
