Kennett students enjoy a 'senior stroll'
● By Steven Hoffman
Kennett pride was on full display on June 7 as the members of Kennett High School's Class of 2016 visited each school in the district for a “senior stroll” through the hallways. While the raucous ovations that they received in each building fell short of Beatlemania-style hysteria, the seniors were certainly made to feel like conquering heroes and rock stars as their graduation day quickly approaches.
The first stop for the seniors was the Kennett Middle School, where students lined up at the door and throughout the school's hallways to boisterously cheer for this year's graduating class. It was a good opportunity for the seniors to take a walk down memory lane, as most of them were visiting schools that they had previously attended. The teachers enjoyed seeing students whom they'd taught in class.
This is the first time that Kennett High School has organized an event like this, and the seniors really enjoyed it.
“It was a lot of fun,” said senior Ryan Hamilton just before he boarded the school bus to go to the next stop.
Nolan Joyce, also a senior, said that it was a great experience. He said that it not only rewards the seniors who have worked hard to reach this point, but it also encourages the younger students to work hard so that they get to become seniors.
Joyce praised high school principal Dr. Jeremy Hritz for doing a good job to make the year a great one for seniors in the school.
