Graduation is not only an exciting part of a teen’s life, but also a time to reflect on how far they have come in education. The senior graduation walk is symbolic of success as they reflect on lessons learned and achievements made in school. The walk ushers graduating seniors to the next part of their life journey while allowing elementary and middle school students to see what they have to work toward.
“Each diploma tells a unique story about each student. I am so proud of this graduating class and feel confident that they are ready for the next big thing in their lives,” Supt. Matt Moore said.
Graduating seniors celebrated with their entire school community as they participated in the second annual senior graduation walk this May. Seniors from East Jessamine High School visited their home elementary and middle schools; Red Oak Elementary, Warner Elementary, Brookside Elementary, Nicholasville Elementary, and East Jessamine Middle on Thursday, May 16, to walk through the hallways decked out in their cap and gowns. West Jessamine High School seniors visited Wilmore Elementary, Rosenwald Elementary, Nicholasville Elementary and West Jessamine Middle School on May 22.
Elementary and middle school students celebrated the success of this developmental transition with their teachers as they paraded through the school hallways. They received cheers, waves, and many high fives from peers, staff and administration.
