Form of 2013

Anniversary 2014

Form plaques for the years of 2013, 2004, 1999, and 1994 are all hanging in their permanent places in the Middle and Lower Dining Halls in Coit. I set up a small display of the Form of 2013 plaque as part of the Anniversay/Graduation weekend celebration:

There was a great turnout from representatives of the Form of 2013 to celebrate the completion of their plaque and the installation of their name plaques:

A few days earlier I had help from Scott hanging the other three plaques:

Now that this batch of plaques is completed it is time to start work on the next four plaques for next year.  I have completed a total of 12 plaques since beginning this project, and have 15 more plaques to carve to fill in all the empty spaces left from the 20 year gap between carvers. Time to get back to work!

The Form of 2013 Plaque

Below is a photograph of the completed plaque for the Form of 2013. The plaque is being dedicated on May 31, 2014 and hangs in the Middle Dining Hall of Coit (The Upper) above the panels that contain the names of all the members of the Form of 2013. Below the photo is the description of the elements incorporated in the plaque design.

The Form of 2013 has the rare distinction of having its representatives win the Hugh Camp Cup competition four years in a row; the central design element of the plaque celebrates this achievement by displaying the cup carved with their form year. The upper left corner carries the symbol for Old Hundred, winners of the 2013 Club Cup competition. In the upper center, a granite paving stone carved with “100%” represents participation by the entire form to the Alumni Fund. The upper right shows a blue and yellow Boston Strong ribbon, honoring the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing. The center background depicts the Bogle-Lechner field, dedicated on September 29, 2012.

The Form of 2013 plaque is now completed.  The above photograph shows a sample of the painted finish on the plaque – the central element representing the Hugh Camp Cup.

The completed framed plaque will be revealed on Anniversary Weekend on Saturday May 31st – at which time photographs of the finished plaque will be published online.  Thank you to the representative from the Form of 2013 for your help with this project –  I am looking forward to seeing members of the Form of 2013 at the SPS Anniversary event to celebrate your new Form plaque!

Below is an animated GIF I put together from photos taken at different stages of the carving process – watch hours and hours of carving elapse in just 15 seconds!

The next step will be to oil the plaque to seal the wood in preparation for the painted finish.  More to follow as things progress!

The design stage is complete for the 2013 Form plaque. I worked with members of the Form of 2013 during the previous School year to come up with a list of events, and the following was chosen by them to represent the 6th Form experiences of the Form of 2013:

  • Upper left: The symbol for the Old Hundred club, winners of the 2013 Club Cup competition.
  • Upper center: The granite paving stone with “100%” carved into it representing the 100% participation of Form members in donations to the Alumni Association.
  • Upper right: The blue and yellow Boston Strong ribbon to honor the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing.
  • Center: The Hugh Camp Cup with “2013” is the central design – representing the unprecedented four year winning streak for Form of 2013 members.
  • Center background: The Bogle-Lechner field, dedicated on September 29, 2012.

I will now begin working on the carving process, with the plan to have the finished plaque to present at Anniversary weekend in June this year.  Photos of the process will be posted on the blog, so stay tuned for more information!
