Sept. 18. DECA announced they would be allowing seniors to buy and paint their own parking spaces. 

“We wanted to promote school spirit and to give seniors something special since so much is being taken from them during these Covid times,” DECA sponsor Nadine Freedline said. 

Parking spot designs were submitted Sept. 24, and spots were sold Sept. 21 through Sept. 23, Painting will take place Oct. 3 and Oct. 10 from 8a.m.-3p.m.

“I’m excited because I have always thought it was a cool idea to paint parking spots and I was always envious of schools that get to do it. I like how personalized it can be,” senior Megan Ramey said.

Seniors are allowed to paint whatever they want on their spot as long as the design follows the dress code and students provide their own supplies for their spot. All designs were pre-approved by administration.

“My hope is that I get the spot that I want. Me and a few friends are planning on reserving spots together,” senior Colin Spies said. “I’m looking forward to seeing all the cool designs people come up with.” 

Along with getting to paint their spots, seniors will reserve their spots for the whole school year.

“I’m excited to have my own parking spot the whole year. I’ll probably paint what sports I play and my name and stuff,” senior Gus Hetzel said. “It seems a lot of things are getting taken from us and this is just something totally new that we get to look forward to.”
