The painting of the senior wall has become a time-honored tradition at RHAM High School. Each year, the custodial staff applies four coats of primer and four top coats over last year’s contributions, providing incoming seniors with a blank canvas upon which to express themselves. Typically, about 90 percent of the incoming class participates in the tradition.
This year, there were quite a few butterflies incorporated into students’ signatures. “It’s because of Paige,” explained incoming senior Ben Cohen. Paige Houston would have been a senior this year at RHAM High School. The popular, outgoing 17-year-old was killed in a single-vehicle accident on Aug. 6. According to her classmates, Houston loved butterflies and had one tattooed on the inside of her wrist.
