The water tower at Cary High School is an iconic landmark and traditional symbol of successfully completing our high school education, graduating, and moving into adulthood for the thousands of students who have attended the school. Painting the graduating class year on the face of the water tower was a "Rite of Passage"; recognized not only by the students, parents, and school administrators, but by the Town of Cary, the local government body. Removing this icon and symbol of success would be devastating to all who have looked for this landmark when returning home; to all who have lived or currently live in the Town of Cary; and, all the students waiting for the day when they will see their graduating class year take its rightful place on the Water Tower.
The signers of this petition ask that you stop the plan to destroy this water tower. We want our traditions to continue for all who have participated in the past and for all who will participate in the future.
