Enka High School seniors brought their Jet pride as they visited their former schools during Friday’s senior walk.

The Class of 2022 split to visit their earliest schools, and then they surprised their own classmates by parading through the high school halls to cheers and shout-outs. Later, they visited Enka Middle and Enka Intermediate. At each school, they high-fived younger students, hugged former teachers, and posed for selfies with old class photos, yearbooks, and younger relatives.

“I thought it was really sweet going back to the elementary schools that we grew up in,” said senior Kate McNeill. “We got to kind of relive it while we walked the hallways and saw our old teachers cheering us on. I definitely felt appreciated.”

It was important for the younger students to see the graduating seniors as role models, said Senior Sponsor Kitty McCurry.

“They see that hard work pays off, and they can see themselves graduating one day,” she said. “And it’s really motivating for the seniors to know that the community is behind them.”
