Bearden High School Senior Committee members plan leave practical parting gift


Each year the Senior Committee at Bearden High School leaves a parting gift for the classmates they leave behind.

Last year’s committee gave plasma TVs. But this year’s committee decided on something a little more down-to-earth.

Shaddi Hasan, senior class president, Lindsey Highland, vice-president, Brynne Jones, secretary, Emily Wise, treasurer, and the other 20 members of this year’s Senior Committee, closed the restrooms during third and fourth periods and after school on March 2, and got to work.

Hasan said they used Lysol on the floors and scrubbed under the sinks. The committee worked three to four hours in two shifts of 10 each. They will probably go back and pressure-wash later on, Hasan added.

“We’re also looking to have a contractor to come in and replace sinks, countertops, mirrors, doors and toilet seats,” he said. Funds from last year’s prom ticket sales, PTSO and BHS foundation will be used for the renovations.

Hasan said the two restrooms, located in the commons area, are the most used at the school.

“They’re kind of notoriously bad. They’ve always been terrible,” he said. The decision “evolved out of many weeks of discussion,” he said, adding that principal Barbara Jenkins has also wanted to improve the restrooms. Hasan said the janitors at BHS have more work than they can possibly do.

“We really want a counter [for the women’s restroom] for people to put their make-up and purses on,” said Wise. “I think we are going to give it a fresh coat of paint.”
