Student council vice president Kirsten Richards presents her idea of allowing seniors to paint a student parking spot to the school board at the meeting on Sept. 9.

Student council vice president Kirsten Richards attended the school board meeting on Sept. 9 and presented her idea of allowing seniors to paint a student parking spot.

“I’m really confident with how I presented the idea,” Richards said. “It’s going under further review to be discussed at the next meeting.”

The school board hasn’t made a decision yet, but it will be discussed at the next meeting on Oct. 1. Student council sponsor Nathaniel Brayton also attended the school board meeting in support of Richards.

“I needed to show her support,” Brayton said. “Having a friendly face normally makes things go smoother. I feel like she did a great job. She was very clear and articulate and she made a very complementary argument.”

Brayton supports allowing seniors to be given the opportunity to paint their own parking spot.

“I think it will be a great way for them to show their personality, have a piece of ownership of the school, and they might feel more passionate about school,” Brayton said. 

Spanish teacher Elma Garnett is also a sponsor alongside Brayton for the student council. 

“I think seniors should be allowed to paint a parking spot because I did it when I was a student at Lampasas High School, and we all loved it,” Garnett said.
