Two Wabash County high schools congratulated its graduating senior class with a special send off: a trip to back to elementary school.
 
Seniors from Southwood Junior-Senior High School and Manchester Junior-Senior High School stopped by their corresponding elementary schools, Southwood Elementary and Manchester Elementary, to share high fives, hugs and congratulations with students just beginning their academic careers.
 
“We wanted the seniors to inspire our elementary students,” Southwood Principal Tim Drake told The Paper of Wabash County. “It also allowed many seniors to show their appreciation to the staff at Southwood Elementary who helped them get a good start toward graduation.”
