While there might still be a few weeks of school left, that hasn’t stopped Mount Airy High School’s seniors from perhaps getting a little nostaligic.

Recently, the students took one last stroll through the halls Tharrington Primary, Jones Intermediate, and Mount Airy Middle, the schools most of them attended on their journey toward their senior year.

”This graduation walk was a great moment for our seniors, younger students, parents, and staff members,” school spokesperson Sonia Dickerson said. “Younger students were reminded of the goal of graduation while parents and staff members celebrated successfully impacting another cohort of students. Elementary teachers were overjoyed to see their former students grown and doing well. Middle school teachers were impressed by how their former students had transformed in such a short time.”

Seniors wrapped up this event by attending the capping ceremony at Mount Airy High School. This event served as a reminder to finish the year strong and to celebrate all the learning they have accomplished in their lives. They selected a person of significance to cap them. Some chose a close friend, mentor, coach, family member, or teacher who impacted them.
