A high school principal is getting high marks for visiting each of his graduating seniors and giving them a celebratory parade by the fire and police departments.
Tabari Wallace of West Craven High School personally congratulated each of the 220 graduates. He spent more than five hours traveling Vanceboro, North Carolina and presenting the graduating seniors with a yard sign. Each one had the student’s photo and announced their accomplishment.
Tabari Wallace told ABC News,(quote) “We asked each senior to let that sign serve as a bridge until we can get them across the traditional stage. Keep your head up high. You are the testament of the 21st century. Perseverance through the face of danger.”
It’s a growing trend. Principal Cara Hayden in Florida visited all 626 of her graduating seniors, including valedictorian Max Lagates. And in Texas, Principal Virdie Montgomery traveled more than 800 miles to reach each of the homes of his graduates and documented it with a selfie. (ABC News)
