Centennial Brick-Waltman

“This brick was a graduation present from my family. I attended Georgia Southern from 2005-2008. I began my studies as a pre-pharmacy major. I quickly found out that pharmacy did not interest me but I was at a lost on what to study. I signed up for intro to philosophy class with Dr. Bill Eaton. Within just a few classes, I was hooked and my life would be forever changed. I switched my major and my true “search for knowledge” began. I now own a law firm in Atlanta where I practice trial work for people charged with criminal offenses. Do yourself a favor and sign up for a philosophy class while attending Georgia Southern, there is no telling what you may find!”

“It started with a brick on the Yellow Brick Road leading to the Judy Garland Museum in Grand Rapids, Minnesota, then it went to the Seneca Park Zoo in Rochester, New York, and then it went national. There are now bricks purchased in all 50 states in honor of my grandkids…and by the way, they now brag about being famous even though I always considered them that way. We have placed bricks in museums (art, Native American, Mexican American, railroad, superhero, armed forces, and maritime); Zoos, a Veterans facility, Libraries, Gardens of Contemplation; schools (hearing impaired, sight impaired, and college campuses); animal rescue, free and low-cost healthcare clinics, a fire department training center, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the Louisiana Governor’s Mansion, historical societies, small town revitalization projects, a 4-H club, a facility for adults with profound mental deficit issues, an equine therapeutic center, a lighthouse, chambers of commerce…and more. It is how America looks; from now on, America will see my grandkids looking back. It makes for a really great road trip!”

“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.”
