OHS Participates in Inaugural Senior Walk
Owensboro High School seniors walked the halls of their OPS elementary and middle schools on Thursday, May 12 at 9 a.m. The seniors were dressed in their graduation caps and gowns. Elementary and middle school students filled the hallways to watch the high schoolers parade the halls they once called home.
“It’s important for our seniors to show younger students in our school system how important it is to not only finish your K-12 education but to excel in your 13 to 14 years depending on preschool at OPS. It was great seeing the inspiring looks on the younger students’ faces when they saw their older idols grace their halls,” said John DeLacey.
“OPS is a family. Many of our graduates got to exchange smiles and hugs with their younger siblings, cousins and friends. They got to visit their former teachers who had a huge impact on their lives. It was a day to remember,” added DeLacey.
