Beautiful p l a c q u e 5 recording“ their achievements in athletics dur— ing their high school careers have senior boys at plan adopted for the first time, this year. j The placques are of copper plate} mounted on ebony wood basesl hearing this wording: Irene S} Reed High School, 1941,] (with a big red S splitting the fig-i ures of the year). This certifies that (athlete’s name) has receiv- ed special recognition for out- standing work in thefollowing ac- tivities. (Then are listed the major and minor sports he has participat— ed in with symbols indicating the major sports and chevrons indi— cating the number of letters earn— ed in each). At the bottom of the placque the signatures of School Supt. H. E. Loop and Principal Dora Fredson are engraved. I The placques are designed to hang on the owner’s bedroom or den wall and will take the place of letters heretofore awarded, the idea being that letters are not permanent trophies of an athlete’s achievements while the placque isl something which will never wear! out. The placques are truly hand- some trophies. Athletes will still be able to pur- chase lettermen sweaters as they always have,~ but instead of hav— ing a collection of useless cloth letters at the end of their prep athletic careers they will have thel symbols of their activities in high school sports. The placques are awarded only to seniors.
