Higher Values in Higher Education
Celebrating a Campus Tradition
Donations in the amount of $1,000 or higher will have their name added to a Distinguished Donor Plaque, which will be incorporated into the project for all to see.
Celebrating one of Western’s richest traditions, the Mascot Memorial Project is seeking donations to complete a new plaza in honor of WIU’s live English bulldog mascot, Colonel Rock.
The new space will adorn a memorial wall featuring WIU’s past bulldog mascots, as well as displaying a timeline history of the live mascot program. Centered in the plaza will stand a keystone statue, honoring all of WIU’s live mascots, both past and present.
Anticipated Completion Date: Fall 2017
On-Campus Location: TBD
All donations to this project are tax deductible. Please consult your tax advisor when filing your return.
