1999 Ivy Day:

Unveiling and Awards 

The 1999 Ivy Stone will be installed in the floor of Houston Hall's north entrance. Since Houston Hall is under renovation, there will be a drawing unveiled near the site on May 15. The stone was designed by Jennifer Rizzi, C '93 and current assistant director in the Penn Alumni Society. The stone was designed non-traditionally with the Penn crest turned sideways. The design will be cut in Vermont gray granite.


The Ivy Day ceremony is Saturday, May 15 at 4 p.m. in Logan Hall (Room 17). Ivy Award winners from the Class of 1974 will be presenting the Senior Honor Awards.

Pulitzer for Music Alumna

Penn alumna Melinda Wagner became the 58th American composer to win the Pulitzer Prize last month. Dr. Wagner, who received her doctorate in composition from Penn in 1986, was awarded the Pulitzer, along with $5,000, for her piece entitled The Concerto for Flute, Strings and Percussion. The 42-year-old composer was trained as a cellist and studied music with Penn's George Crumb, Richard Wernick and Jay Reise.
