Saluting the senior class

06/02/2017 03:31PM, Published by Steven Hoffman, Categories: Today, Schools



Two days before the Oxford Area High School seniors officially received their diplomas, they received something else—lots of cheers and adulation.

Following the dress rehearsal for the graduation ceremony on May 31, the seniors were loaded on to school buses and taken for a tour of each school building—Jordan Bank, Elk Ridge, Nottingham, Hopewell, and Penn's Grove—as the younger students in the district lined up outside to cheer the seniors as the buses drove by. Many of the youngest students in the district were holding signs congratulating the seniors on their achievements. Led by a police escort, the buses also drove through the center of town, where people lined up on Third Street to give the seniors even more good wishes.

This was the second year in a row that the high school seniors were bused through the district so that they could be showered with cheers. The element of surprise might have been missing in the second year, but that didn't mean that the seniors enjoyed the ride through Oxford any less.

As one senior yelled jubilantly through the bus window, “We're graduating!”
