Kennett High School Seniors Stroll Down Memory Lane

On Thursday, May 30, approximately 300 members of Kennett High School’s Class of 2019 participated in the fourth annual Senior Stroll.

The seniors, clad in their graduation gowns, visited Mary D. Lang Kindergarten Center, New Garden Elementary, Greenwood Elementary, Bancroft Elementary, and Kennett Middle School. College-bound graduates also wore T-shirts from their respective colleges and universities under their gowns. The hallways of all buildings were lined with teachers and students cheering on and wishing good luck to the soon-to-be graduates. Members of the graduating class wore name tags that were color-coded based on the elementary school they attended, so former students were easily identifiable as they entered their old school buildings.

Dr. Jeremy Hritz instituted the Stroll in his first year as Kennett High School principal.

“This is a special year for the Stroll because this is the first senior class that would have attended Bancroft Elementary. Our students are excited to reunite with their former teachers and to motivate and inspire the younger students.”

Senior Caleb Pebly, like many of his classmates, has attended Kennett schools for all 13 of the years leading up to this moment. He attended what was then Mary D. Lang Elementary School from kindergarten to fourth grade then moved to Greenwood Elementary School for fifth grade.

​”I’m excited to go back and see how everything has changed,” Caleb said. And I’m anxious to have the chance to say good-bye the right way, to let my teachers know that I truly appreciate everything they did for me.”

Caleb is headed to Penn State this fall.

Kennett High School’s 128th commencement exercises will be held on June 7.
