Senior Sunrise Breakfast kicks off the 21-22 school year


GCHS Seniors enjoy a moment of fellowship before their first day of school.

Graves County High School began the school year on August 5 with a special celebration for seniors.

“We wanted the students to have a time together to reflect on their high school career and look forward to their senior year,” said Vice Principal Michael Cole.

The Senior Sunrise Breakfast included a breakfast spread and balloon release at the football stadium. More than 100 students attended that morning, creating their first memories of their final year at GCHS.

“We got to bond and write letters to our future graduated selves, just starting the year in a positive outlook,” said senior Emma Swift.

“I really enjoyed eating breakfast with my friends,” said senior Lizzie Irions. “I am excited to take advantage of what’s left of high school.”

Swift agreed, saying “I’m looking forward to getting cap and gown, senior headshots, and the extra things that only seniors get to do.”
