"The flower girls are always my favorite part. However, my favorite favorite favorite part of graduation is what happens after. We [faculty] line the hallways right outside of the stage door and give the seniors one final clap out. It is a really sweet movement; all of the people who have impacted the senior and got them to this very moment, saying goodbye one last time," says English teacher Dr. Lauren Oetinger.
