Save a QHS Jackrabbit Tradition
For decades, seniors at Quincy High School have enjoyed a tradition that allows them to leave their mark, both figuratively and literally. During homecoming week the seniors take to the nearby street to paint their name, celebrating their last year in their public school. It's a tradition students look forward to from a young age.
A few years ago the citizens of Quincy voted to have their taxes increased in support of the students in their area. The opportunity was taken at that time to do away with this tradition.
We are so grateful for our impressive new high school. However, we do not believe forgoing decades old tradition is what the community wants nor is it something that should have been a part of the contract for a new school.
We petition those responsible to allow Quincy High School seniors the right to carry on the tradition of spray painting their names on Jackrabbit Street.
