Medals UK was commissioned to produced the Hamilton Grammar School James Blacklock Dux Award Medal in 2017. The prestigious medal is produced annually by the school, renowned for being amongst the best in Scotland. The James Blacklock Dux Award Medal is named after the founder of Hamilton Academy and previous rector of the school. Blacklock headed the school for 34 years between 1863 and 1897 and the first medal was presented to commemorate the rector’s final year, 120 years ago.
Since then the James Blacklock Dux Award Medal has been awarded annually for outstanding academic success at a prize-giving ceremony attended by Hamilton Grammar School’s pupils, their parents, staff and friends. The medal measures 50mm is produced in gold and features a semi-proof finish.
The 2017 Hamilton Grammar School James Blacklock Dux Award Medal was presented to Janika Popova and the pupil’s achievement was celebrated in the Daily Record and Hamilton Advertiser.
