I’ve been getting e-mails from area residents wondering about the shoe polished cars of incoming Highland Park High School seniors. The traditional SKA (seniors kick butt with an A) has been updated, the S turned into a dollar sign. Many parents had jumped to the conclusion that the dollar sign was an arrogant nod to the wealth of HPISD students. Rest easy, the lines through the S represent their graduation year, 2011. Just a clever little update to the acronym.
It’s the A you’ll have to creatively explain to curious little ones.
