Former principal Roger Erickson has hidden multiple prizes inside the senior lockers to add some excitement to the beginning of the 2016-17 school year. Erickson is repurposing old memories of his time as a staff member.

“I was cleaning out my office and had lots of old school photos, so rather than throw them away, I just put them in senior lockers,” Erickson said.

Although multiple senior lockers have pictures in them, there is only one grand prize. However, for now, Erickson is not sharing what that will be.

“The grand prize will be for the senior who receives my 8×10 from about 25 years ago. The prize shall remain a mystery for now,” Erickson said.

Through the old pictures and scavenger hunt for the grand prize, Erickson has left one last humorous ‘goodbye’ to students.

“I thought this might be a good laugh when seniors return,” Erickson said.

Erickson said the student who finds the 8×10 photo should report to journalism teacher Robin Montano to claim their ‘grand prize.’
