Taking School Spirit to the Grave
NEW YORK -- If you thought school spirit meant just plastering your college bumper sticker on your car, think again. These days, devoted alumni and fans of their college team can show their undying school spirit — in a college-themed casket.
"I don't think any of us can deny the experience education has played in our lives," said Scott Walston, president of Collegiate Memorials, which sells the caskets for 46 schools throughout the country. "When families choose the casket, they're setting the stage to conjure up memories to celebrate who the person was."
