Central High School seniors inspire younger students

RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA TV) - Seniors from Central High School took a stroll down memory lane Friday, as they walked the halls of Rapid Valley Elementary.

The elementary school hosted a Senior Walk, welcoming graduates and congratulating them as they prepare to take the next step in their lives. It comes as part of an effort to inspire success in the younger students.

“It gives them an idea of what’s to come for their futures and that what they’re doing right now is important,” said Garrett Buckingham, a graduating senior.

Graduation for the class of 2017 will take place May 28 at the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center.
