Teachers At Southeast Lauderdale High School Surprised Graduating Seniors

Today in Lauderdale County, the principal and teachers of a local high school delivered a surprise to their graduating seniors during this pandemic.

While cheering and playing celebratory music, staff members at Southeast Lauderdale High School led a caravan to the homes of each graduating senior.

To hand the students a yard sign sporting their names and senior class photographs, to honor them graduating.

“Seniors are part of the fondation of our school, I mean they’ve been here with us for four years, they’ve had experiences that they have shared with their friends and now they can’t see the culmination of all their efforts, those senior nights and different things such as that, so we’re just trying to give them some semblance of normal the best way we know how”, said Donna Sprabery, librarian at Southeast Lauderdale High School.

As seniors are waiting to hear about plans for a graduation ceremony, staff members from Southeast are hoping that the caravan will cheer students up as they wait for a decision to be made.

“Mr. Keene and Ms. Burnham, our principal and assistant principal decided that it would be a really good idea since everything is just so up in the air with graduation right row to at least give them a little something from the school to tell them we’re thinking about them and show them how much we care about them and support them during this time”, said Sprabery.

“We hope it’s a surprise, but you know how seniors are, they have probable figured something out, but we’re hoping to surprise them, you know, it’s not perfect circumstances, but we’re trying to make the best out of it and we want them to have a memory that’s pretty cool and I think it will be”, said Russell Keene, principal at Southeast Lauderdale High School.

The other high schools within the Lauderdale County School District will be announcing their plans for graduation within the next week.
