The Senior Class of 2019 celebrated their graduation preparation by participating in the “Marauder Mile,” modeling to younger students that they too can achieve the ultimate accomplishment: graduation. Seniors had the opportunity to parade through all three Mt. Vernon elementary schools, as well as Mt. Vernon Middle School (MVMS). The seniors were greeted warmly by the students who lined the halls, giving them high-fives throughout their walk.
The parade through the schools not only allowed the graduating seniors to reflect on their time at Mt. Vernon and visit the schools one last time as a student, but it also served to inspire the younger students to do their best in order to graduate. The event seemed to have a tremendous effect on both the Class of 2019 and the elementary and middle school students. Congratulations to the Class of 2019!
