Every year at the informant’s high school, the senior class was allowed to paint all of the trash cans in school their class colors and logo. They would collect all of the trash cans on the football field and one day after school go wild painting them. This was school sanctioned and their class representatives on the faculty would participate as well. It was a way for the senior class to feel like they really owned their campus for their last year.
The year the informant’s class painted the trash cans they also filmed the television show Room 222 on campus. The informant and all of his peers in the senior class were very excited to see their colored trash cans on TV.
