The Form of 1994 Plaque

Below is a photograph of the completed plaque for the Form of 1994. The plaque is being dedicated on May 31, 2014 and hangs in the Lower Dining Hall of Coit (The Upper) above the panels that contain the names of all the members of the Form of 1994. Below the photo is the description of the elements incorporated in the plaque design.

The center vertical design element of the Form of 1994 plaque is the Princess Elizabeth Challenge Cup, displayed atop the Henley shield, representing the win by the boys crew. In the background is Kehaya House, dedicated in January of that school year. A compass in the upper left corner represents the Thompson Island Outward Bound trip made in the fall of 1993. The upper right corner features the flag of South Africa, adopted as part of the April 1994 general election. This symbol, combined with the ribbon in the lower right and left sections, marks the end of Apartheid. Carved into the ribbon is an excerpt from a quote by Nelson Mandela: “Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world.”
