Weiser High Seniors make their final mark on the school they’ve called their own for the last four years by painting their names on the street. No one seems to know when this tradition of painting the street began, but Weiser High Principal, Dave Davies, shared that his mother remembered painting her name on the street during the days of the Institute.
This Weiser tradition may have changed streets and locations over the years, but it still seems to be a big hit with each senior class. Outgoing Weiser High student body president, Kasey Kautz, shared his thoughts on this tradition and his classes final memory making moments before graduation, “The Paint the Street tradition is one of the most well known traditions at WHS. By painting our names on the street, it allows for students to leave their final mark on the school in a way that can represent them as an individual. We gather together, play music, and giggle as we near the end of our journey as a class. I could not imagine a better way to wrap up the school year. As a student body, we are lucky to have administrators and teachers who are willing to allow for such memorable traditions to continue.”
