MATTHEWS – Twenty six Butler High School graduates, and one from East Mecklenburg High School, saw their school careers come full circle as they attended the Senior Walk event at Crown Point Elementary School on Tuesday morning. The event honors graduating high school students perseverance as they walk the halls of the elementary school. All 708 Crown Point students lined the halls to cheer for and high-five them as they passed by. Ten of the participating graduates attended Crown Point Elementary school years ago as young children.
The first time event, slated to become a yearly tradition, was created not only to honor young men and women for making it through their compulsory school years but to provide perspective for the elementary school students. To show them what is to come and to create a memory that they can look back on for perspective when they graduate high school in the years ahead, explained organizers at Crown Point.
