Seniors One Step Closer
Seniors have been “turnt up” all week in anticipation for the return of the Josten’s company who brings caps, gowns, tassels, sweat shirts, sweat pants, backpacks and lots of other class inspired items. The seniors were amped to order and receive things in direct representation of their outstanding class spirit.
Tuesday the seniors placed orders and made down payments on their packages and received some class inspired gear. The students were more than ecstatic to receive their goodies and they sported them around all day on Tuesday.
Mariah Guise says, “I’m in love with my senior jogging suit. I might have to just wear it every day.”
The company coming to Wirt and enabling the seniors to order their necessities and goodies for graduation was an awakening of how close they are to the end of their high school careers.
Taylor Howard comments, “I was really excited to see them, but when I saw the tassels I was in shock for a second like oh my gosh this is really happening. It’s so funny to think just last year I was just watching as the seniors got their stuff.”
The cap and gowns being ordered are one symbol of the beginning to the end
