     On Memorial Day of 1922 the original design of the memorial was complete, as an irregularly shaped boulder was placed at the base of the flagpole, and a marble marker attached to it designating the students remembered and their designated trees.  Students from the school sang "America the Beautiful" and "America," and a recitation of the names of the honored students was made and flowers strewn by children from the model school.  In final tribute to the soldiers a bugle played "taps."
