Lore

The lore begins when a Spanish teacher, who had worked in Williamston Community Schools for a while died or moved away in 2014. She was most likely using the D2 classroom since 2007 or maybe even the 1990s. To give you an idea of how long she was working there, the teacher kept some of her old student's projects in storage in the form of videotape. This means she was working long before it became the norm to turn in projects on Youtube, Google Classroom, etc. However, when this teacher passed away, all of her classroom stuff was left behind. The new Spanish teacher didn't know what to do with all of it, and as a result left most of it alone for her first year at WHS, until the end of the 2018-2019 school year, when she finally decided to oust it from her classroom, D2 (located in the D-hall). Rather than allow said teacher to dispose of the merchandise, Charlie Nolan and Sean Kavanagh offered to take it all off her hands. And so, on that fateful day, they threw it all in 2 trash bags and dragged it home on a sled...


Items Acquired

A wide varity of merchandise was obtained from the "salvage" run, naturally, most of it is in Spanish. What was recovered consists of videos and tv series, most of which were stored on VHS tapes, a few DVDs, a couple of Mini-DV tapes, and even a Compact Cassette. These tapes include, but are not limited to, old Williamston Weeklys, Educational Spanish TV shows, Spanish projects made by former students, and advertisements. The most infamous of these historical artifacts is the Spanish II Project by Pat Weber and many others, which was made in 1998. Oddly enough, these projects provide the best source of what Williamston High School looked like in its earlier years. Around 50 tapes were recovered, if you include the many VHS tapes that make the educational series such as La Catrina and Destinos. Some of the tapes have been erased and repurposed after being digitally archived. Here is a full list of the relics retrieved from the salvage run that have been converted to digital video and uploaded to YouTube :
