Golden Taps

Golden Taps

The Golden Taps ceremony

honors students who pass away

while enrolled at Purdue.

Their families receive a 

golden replica of the 

Unfinished Block P sculpture

representing the student's 

unfinished journey.

Purdue University is ever grateful to

David and Nancy Sebastian for establishing the

Unfinished Block P Endowment in memory of 

Rex A. ('51) and Dorothy B. ('51) Sebastian.

Rex and Dorothy were longtime benefactors of

Purdue, supporting projects including the

Unfinished Block P sculpture.
