Students gather to hang pennants on the cafeteria wall. Seniors were asked to decorate their pennants with their college logos prior, though decorating materials were available at the event.

Seniors showed up to school on Friday with swag – literally. On April 30, seniors came into the cafeteria decked out in their college attire to show off the colleges they will be attending. S.G.A decorated the cafeteria, so students could enjoy donuts and hang up their college pennants as they celebrated the start of a new chapter in their lives.
