Middlesboro Elementary School started a new school tradition by hosting a "Senior Walk" on Friday, May 22, 2015.  Middlesboro High School Seniors, wearing their graduation caps and gowns, marched down the hallways of the elementary school as the younger students watched enthusiastically.  The elementary school students lined each hallway to greet and honor the graduating seniors. Kindergarten students presented the seniors with "graduation lollipops".  After the walk, the seniors were treated to refreshments in the cafeteria. Yearbooks from previous years were placed at each table so that the seniors could reminisce about their years as Middlesboro Yellow Jackets.

According to Theresa Allen, Guidance Counselor at Middlesboro Elementary School, leaders can be made through training, modeling, and experiential learning.
