Walla Walla High School seniors honored with yard signs


April 16, 2020

WALLA WALLA-Walla Walla High School seniors found a surprise waiting for them on their front lawns last week. Bright blue signs were posted in the yards of every senior in the Class of 2020. The yard sign idea came from the school's Associated Student Body Leadership students, under the guidance of Adviser Arch McHie. The class leaders wanted to let seniors know they were appreciated and missed as schools will remain closed for the remainder of the year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Bright blue signs popped up on Walla Walla High School seniors lawns on Thursday, April 9, a project of the school's Associated Student Body Leadership students.

The 400 signs were purchased from a local Walla Walla business and distributed by the student leaders who were given a route and traveled alone in their cars to post the signs with no interactions from their classmates.

The feedback for the effort has been resoundingly positive. "We feel terrible for our seniors who are missing out on senior prom, traditional graduation ceremonies and so many other aspects of school life. This was a little boost to let them know we are thinking about them," said Principal Ron Higgins. Go Blue Devils!
