Bricks from Original Vanier Complex Plaza Salvaged

MANHATTAN, Kan. – With construction of the new Vanier Football Complex underway and the current Vanier structure being demolished, athletics officials have announced that many of the memorial bricks that were located in the entry plaza of the complex have been salvaged and can be picked up by respective donors.  

These bricks are now located on the east side of Bill Snyder Family Stadium between Gate S and Gate T. The bricks have been placed on separate pallets by alphabetical order and can be picked up anytime between Friday, December 19 and Monday, January 5.  

Although many bricks were saved, there were some that did break and could not be salvaged.  K-State Athletics cannot guarantee all personal brick are available in the Northeast walkway, but all donors are welcome to stop by and look within the above mentioned time frame.  Due to time demands, the bricks cannot be monitored by staff, but donors are encouraged to stop by and look at their convenience.        
The department also remains committed to recognizing all previous donors on a prominent recognition wall located within the new Vanier Family Football Complex grand atrium and entranceway.  

The Ahearn Fund is available to answer any questions fans may have regarding this new recognition or the salvaged bricks and can be reached at 888-232-9074 or
