Trivia

*The architecture of East High School centers around a three-story circular "silo." In 1992, as part of the senior class prank, the roof of the silo was painted with a large yellow "smiley face." For a time the prank was visible from 40,000ft. (see [http://terraserver.microsoft.com/image.aspx?T=1&S=10&Z=16&X=1951&Y=24500&W=1] ).
