The Escambia County High School senior class did the first ever walk through at Escambia County Middle School, Rachel Patterson Elementary, and A.C. Moore Elementary Wednesday, May10. They dressed in their caps and gowns and walked the halls of each school.

At each school, the students lined the halls outside their classrooms. The elementary schools did a great job in cheering for the upcoming graduates and making signs for them. It was a great success.

After the visits, the seniors returned to the high school to a surprise brunch provided by the senior parents.

Some of the graduation gowns didn’t arrive until the day of the walk, and some were terribly wrinkled. Shown, ECHS Counselor Ashley Trawick set up an ironing board in her office and started pressing.
