The College High Class of 1957 came up with an interesting project: carving the stump of the old elm tree north of the BHS Science Wing into the school’s former and current mascots. They paid to have Clayton Coss sculpt one portion into a Wildcat and BHS alums paid to have the rest formed into a Bruin.
Bill Miller, the BHS Safety Guy, used one of the campus security cameras to compile a time-lapse video of the sculpting process, which I then edited for time, color, and contrast and I threw in a soundtrack. He and I collaborated previously on a similar project when they demolished the old BHS skybridge.
