During the Eighth Annual Poly Vue celebration and campus open house, a memorial plaque was unveiled commemorating the dedication of the Voorhis School to California State Polytechnic College, San Luis Obispo. The large granite boulder and plaque were moved to the Pomona campus for the 1996 Founder's Day celebration and placed in Voorhis Park (next to the CLA bldg. 98). Because the campus was all male until 1961, the Poly Vue court was drawn each year from a different local college. The 1950 court came from Whittier College.
