Graduating PHS senior Allen Bufford speaks to Hill City Elementary 5th grade students.

     In what could become a new tradition, graduating seniors from PHS visited their former Pickens elementary and middle schools this week, Wednesday, May 20. 

     Around 11 a.m. a group of seniors were bussed to the Hill City Elementary campus wearing full cap and gown. Hill City students lined the walls while grads made their way through the hallway to the gym, where five seniors gave advice to rising middle schoolers.

     "We thought it was important for them to speak to our students," said Hill City Elementary principal Joeta Youngblood.

     Student speakers included Tyler Austin, Savannah Friedman, Jesse Brooks, John Holbert and Allen Bufford.

     Graduating seniors visited other Pickens campuses that day as well.
