Walk of Fame

What do Hank Aaron, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Sugar Ray Leonard, Michael Jordan, Martina Navratilova, Cal Ripken Jr. and Carl Lewis all have in common? Besides being sports superstars, their names also appear on our Walk of Fame.

The brick walkway along the western perimeter of the campus, leading to the “Tribute to the Human Spirit” mural by Cristóbal Gabarrón, is literally paved with the names of those who achieved immortality in their respective sports. Other celebrities, elected officials and foreign dignitaries have placed their names there as well. As friends and aficionados of art and sports, you too can become a part of this beautification project by purchasing one or more bricks along the path. Each brick will be engraved to your specifications, reflecting your choice of wording. Brick purchases are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Buying bricks along our Walk of Fame gives you a unique opportunity to show your support of the arts, as well as honor your loved ones, family, teammates, coaches, colleagues, and friends with a lasting memorial. Bricks can be purchased for $30 each.

If you would like to add your name to our Walk of Fame, please contact: ASAMA, One Academy Drive, Daphne, Alabama 36526 (telephone number: 251-626-3303).
