Redemptorist students take last walk
By Katherine Miller
CROWLEY – On Tuesday, May 19, the eighth grade class of Redemptorist Catholic walked the halls of the school for the final time, signifying their “graduation” from elementary to high school at 2 p.m.
Fellow students and parents of the class lined the halls as the students made their last round. Shouts of “Good luck” and “We’ll miss you!” could be heard throughout the school.
Prior to this special day, the parents and faculty booked a trolley to make the day even more memorable. The trolley arrived at 2:30 p.m. to a surprised group of students.
The class, along with Fr. Matthew Higginbotham, school chancellor, and their teacher, Ms. Naomi Reed boarded the trolley, which took them for an hour long ride around the city of Crowley.
“It is so hard to say goodbye to this class,” said Reed with a smile. “They are a group of great leaders.”
Michelle Puissegur, who taught the majority of the class during their kindergarten year, echoed similar sentiments, “They are very involved in the community and will continue to do well in high school.”
The class includes Damien Ard, Ben Arledge, Adam Crochet, Andrew Breaux, Mylaina Brooks, Elizabeth Dartez, Jordan Guillot, Alaina Duos, Brittany Hulin, Katelyn Hoffpauir, Brittany Domingue, Kaleigh Credeur, Aaron Bertrand, Meagan Murrell, Nicholas Murphy, Mickey Morgan, Payton Klumpp, Theresa Prather, Nicole Sonnier, Cissy Meaux, Andrew Zaunbrecher, Skylar Petry, Abbie Thibodeaux, Kaylee Richard, Kayleigh Sanders, Amanda Romero, Ashlee White, Allison LeBeouf and Lauren Romero.
The class will participate in a farewell ceremony to be held at Immaculate Heart of Mary tonight.
