Greene County and Paton-Churdan are both holding commencement exercises this afternoon at 2 pm.
Greene County commencement will be at Greene County Middle School; Paton-Churdan commencement will be at the school in Churdan.
Both schools started what may be a new tradition – a Senior Walk. Wearing their caps and gowns, the graduates walked through school hallways retracing the steps of their earlier school days.
According to Greene County principal Brian Phillips, the purpose of the Senior Walk is to inspire younger students, who look up to older students, to work towards graduation. It also presented an opportunity for smiles, hugs, and plenty of “high fives.”
