The upper left corner of the 2016 plaque has two puzzle pieces with the letters “SPS” on them to represent the first SPS Puzzle Hunt day. On the upper right side a baseball bat, a section of track, and a hockey stick, spells out the letters “ISL” to mark the School’s decision to leave the athletic organization. The center design features a Bald Eagle and a Tocoro bird (the national bird of Cuba) perched together on an olive branch to represent the normalization of relations between the governments of Cuba and the United States. The bottom of the plaque depicts Tuck and Hargate with a double ended arrow between them, representing the construction phase and exchange of functions between the two buildings.

The Form of 2016 plaque is now completed. The detail photograph above shows a sample of the painted finish on the plaque – an American eagle and Cuban trogan bird representing the normalizing of relationships between the US and Cuba.
The completed framed plaque will be presented on Anniversary Weekend at the beginning of June – at which time photographs of the finished plaque will be published online. Thank you to the representatives from the Form of 2016 for their help with this project – make sure to stop by the Upper to see your plaque if you are visiting that weekend!
