Special Edition -September 2010


'Spirit of the Pointer'


Clay casting for the new Pointer Dog sculpture. Dog to be cast in bronze; Sweater will be cast with maroon tint; PL letters will be burnished to appear gold.

Keeping the
'Spirit of the Pointer'
alive at PLHS

Through the years PLHS Alumni have shown generosity and enthusiasm for projects that honor our Pointer legacy. Alumni, Administration, and Students are excited about the Pointer Dog sculpture.

Alum, and artist, Richard Arnold ('57) has created a beautiful sculpture of 'our' Pointer for the campus, giving us the opportunity to honor the 'Spirit of the Pointer' as PLHS celebrates our 85th year.

The Dog will premiere on the weekend of the PLHS 85th Birthday Gala (don't miss this event!) and will be permanently mounted on a 44 inch high by 60 inch wide concrete stand in the Quad. Thanks to Randy Dietz ('81) for donating his time and expertise and finishing the stand before school started!

we need your help to cover the cost of the materials for the sculpture and the stand.

Individual donors will be recognized on a plaque on the side panel .

Commemorative Bricks available: SORRY, BRICKS ARE SOLD OUT ! !
