The ASB officers and city officials gather for a photo with the Hawk Way sign on Sept. 26.

The ASB officers, along with members of the city council, including Mayor Jerry Smith, had a parade of sorts on Wednesday, September 26, at 9 a.m. to celebrate the renaming of 217th Street SW to Hawk Way.

It is more of an extended driveway which passes around the school, and not an actual street, so it was not much of a headache to rename.

With support from both the Edmonds School District and Mountlake Terrace City Council, it was an easy decision to make. The celebratory event occurred during the PASS period, and lasted for about half hour. During that time, students and staff lined themselves along the drive and followed the truck which carried the big six and the street sign.

Sophomore Kelsey Potts said, “I think it was a good idea to rename the street, because now we have a driveway with a name. It makes it more official.”

However, not all students are in the same boat. There are many who have a somewhat differing opinion. Sophomore Jacob Devera said “Yes and no, I didn’t think it was a good idea to use pass time to stand outside in the cold, but I did like that we renamed the street.”

Junior Lucero Garcia believed that the event was organized. Garcia said “I think it was organized, there was music and everyone came outside.”

However, sophomore Mark Malabuen said, “It wasn’t as organized as it could be, it was loud, and not many people could hear what they were saying.”
