Yep, the bathrooms.
What began as a community service project designed to clean up the dilapidated restrooms adjacent to the football field turned out to be the highlight not only of the Liberty homecoming week, but perhaps the entire year.
"I remember being at a football game with my mom and going into the bathroom and coming out again because it was so disgusting," said Ciara Claraty, president of the First Priority Christian Students Club at Liberty High School. "It was obvious they (bathrooms) hadn't been redone in a while, so that's when we decided to clean them up."
And in a big way.
For over two weeks, approximately a dozen or more members of the on-campus Christian club scraped, sanded, painted and stenciled their way through the boy's and girl's restrooms, transforming them into shining prisms of pride for the Liberty Lions.
"It was really an amazing project," said Ciara. "It took us one whole day just to get the graffiti off the walls. But it ended up looking great."
Through the donations of local businesses such as Longs Drugs, Ace Hardware and Kelly Moore Paint, along with the school maintenance department, which ordered new fixtures and toilets, the 150-plus man-hours of work culminated in a grand opening Homecoming night.
"We were so excited," said Ciara. "We even had monitors in the bathrooms during the game handing out soap and towels. One of the homecoming princesses came into the bathroom and just started to cry; it was very impressive."
