Westlake Seniors Paint Personal Parking Spots

THORNWOOD, N.Y. – Emily Singer and Diana Maldonado were sprawled across the blacktop in the Westlake High School parking lot Monday, paint brushes flying as the senior classmates redesigned Singer’s designated parking spot.

“I’m the senior class treasurer and seniors get to have personal parking spaces for the year,” Singer said as she dabbed white paint down her space’s border, which featured a 1960s peace sign left behind by the previous owner. “It a perk for being a senior. I’m going to feature a smiley face.”

Maldonado was assisting her class officer friend and anticipating a long week of parking lot painting. Seniors are also responsible for refreshing the numerous white painted Wildcats paws that mark a trail from the school’s entrance to the school parking area.

“We do our spaces and then we have to help paint all the Wildcats paws that are fading,” Maldonado said.

“There are a lot of them, so we’ll be out here for a while. It’s one of the traditions we have at Westlake,” Singer said, pointing to the other faded spaces. “It’s part of school spirit. I guess we’ll be getting some sun while we work, so that’s good.”

Maldonado and Singer have until Labor Day to complete their task and for the paint to dry. Westlake High opens the fall semester on Tues. Sept. 6.
