The carving for the Form of 2009 plaque is now completed. The representatives from the Form of 2009 chose the following events to be illustrated on the plaque:
- The upper left corner has the Democratic donkey symbol with President Obama’s initials to represent his win of the 2008 General Election
- The upper right corner has the Lion Capital of Ashoka to represent India Week
- Across the bottom edge is the arrow representing the cross country team’s win at the New England championships
- The center of the design features a polar bear supporting the earth to represent the Environmental Stewardship/Environmental Values Statement that were adopted that year as well as the school-wide Earth Day event
Now that the carving process is completed, I will apply a painted finish to the plaque to have it ready for presentation at the 2017 Anniversary Weekend at the beginning of June. Stay tuned for updates on the completion of the plaque!
