Students, staff cheer as seniors march through the hallways

Seniors celebrate their choices after graduation as underclassmen and staff cheer.

As the school year comes to an end, students begin to get excited for their summer vacations, but seniors are looking farther down the road as they prepare to head off to college or vocational training. To celebrate, BRHS seniors marched in a parade on Decision Day on May 11. Staff and students lined the hallways, cheering and shooting confetti as the seniors walked by holding signs and wearing gear displaying their post-secondary choices. Seniors looked happy and nervous while walking with their classmates for the last four years.

Many students are staying in New York but a few are venturing to other states such as California and Georgia.
