Friends of SCICON Walk

(In memory of Dick Hoskins)


A new brick walkway has been established in honor and memory of Dick Hoskins.  Continuing with his motto of "SCICON is people working together", the walkway will provide an opportunity for service clubs, businesses and families to purchase a brick to show support for the SCICON program. Located by the bell tower the walkway will be a focal point of SCICON activity.  Meant to recognize the supporters of  SCICON in a public way,  this memorial will allow visitors and  students  to see firsthand the outpouring of community commitment and involvement that makes our program great. For more information please call the SCICON office at 559-539-2642.
