Seniors gathered on Friday morning to take part in their senior parade, escorted by the Vicksburg Police Department.
“I am very excited because we didn’t get to anything over the last years because of COVID, so I’m just glad my class gets to meet each other and bond over the past few years we missed being at school,” said Junior Class President Jalyn Davis.
The COVID-19 pandemic put a strain on students and teachers, forcing many to abruptly adjust to new policies and educational procedures.
“I want to accomplish us having more events together like joining any clubs,” stated Davis. “…just get everybody in clubs and everybody involved this year.”
“I am excited for this school year. I just can’t wait to see what this year is going to bring for us,” stated a VWSD student at the parade. “I want to join every club that they have this year.”
The classmates seemed to be full of hope this year; hope that their year would not be cut short due to COVID policies and allow them to enjoy school activities and socializing with classmates.
Horns honked with enthusiasm as the students lined up behind Vicksburg police to be escorted to campus. The new year has bred new hope for the days ahead.
Vicksburg Daily News wishes the students best of luck in the school year to come.
