From Leslie Dixon’s article on the Sun Journal website:

Camo is Eddie Curtis’ favorite color.

So it wasn’t difficult for the students and staff at the Oxford Hills Technical School’s automotive collision repair technology class to figure out what color to paint the van they were secretly restoring for him.

On Tuesday, March 29, the 2000 Dodge 3500 van was presented to George Edward “Eddie” Curtis III of Oxford — a 2011 graduate of Oxford Hills Comprehensive High School and the auto tech program — and his family in a surprise ceremony at the school.

Curtis has used a wheelchair most of his life and needs a vehicle equipped to handle his specialized chair.
