The Light Show Design:
This original design, depicted in SPU’s school colors of maroon and white, was created by Sam Davis, SPU senior design manager and alumna. It’s based on Morse code, an alphabet in which letters and numbers are represented by combinations of long and short signals of light or sound. The series of short and long white lights spell out “SPU 125." The shorter series of white lights represent dots, and the longer series of white lights represent dashes.
A special thank you to Great Wheel lighting programmer Gerry Hall!
