Lexington Elementary Welcomed Back Graduates

We had the honor to host some of our former graduates as they get ready to graduate from River Bluff High School and Lexington High School.  They walked the halls to Pomp & Circumstance and CHEERS!  Many reconnected with their past teachers and had fun finding themselves in the old yearbooks.  As they toured the building there were many comments about what had changed and how they remembered things being “larger”.  It was a great day and we were honored that they came back to visit!
