Class of 2014 Dedicates New College Sign

May 22, 2014

Mary Baldwin University faculty, staff, and students joined Class of 2014 officers May 16 to dedicate the senior class gift, a curved brick sign and planting bed marking the entrance to the college. Kahler Slater architects designed the sign — with assistance from Mary Baldwin Director of Facilities Management Brent Douglass — and Davis Construction and Masonry built it. After the dedication, seniors decorated the Ham and Jam statues in front of the Admissions Building in their class colors, scarlet and gold.

Seniors held a series of fundraisers during spring semester to finance the gift, which harkens back to their freshman-year theme, “The Power to Be.”

“There is a special sense of power that comes when you name something. By naming something you claim it,” said Holly Johnston, Class of 2014 president. “We see the sign as a way to leave our mark and claim the importance of our undergraduate education here at Mary Baldwin.”
