Brass plaques are 1” x 3” with up to 25 characters. (“In Memory of” or “In Honor of” are complimentary and not part of the character count.)

Together with significant programming, building an auditorium is one of the most important undertakings to enhance the future of our College and its relevance to the greater region.” –Jeffrey Silberschlag, Professor of Music
