IDA National Headquarters Unveils Donor Wall
55 Recipients Honored With Bricks in the Wall
IDA Branch presidents, Board members, volunteers, schools and local branches were among those honored recently with the installation of IDA's 'Buy-A-Brick' giving campaign. Those honored by their friends, families, organizations and associates included several giants in the field of dyslexia like Roger Saunders and Alice Koontz, as well as others like Wayne LaMade, Nancy Hennessy and Meg Porch--individuals whose passion for dyslexia galvanized them onto a years-long personal crusade of volunteerism for the dyslexia cause.
Several hundred bricks remain available to purchase for future honorees. If you are interested in honoring an individual or organization by naming them to a brick in the international headquarters, contact Kristi Bowman, IDA Director of Development, (410) 561-6402.
