Popham Elementary students, teachers and staff congratulate former students during High School Senior Walk on May 22, 2017.

(DEL VALLE, Texas) A week before graduation, Del Valle High School seniors are donning their caps and gowns to take part in a first ever Senior Walk. Nearly 400 seniors are visiting their former elementary and middle school campuses to say thanks to their previous teachers and staff and to inspire younger students to aim for college.

Elementary and middle school students, teachers and staff are lining the halls of Del Valle ISD schools to cheer on the seniors. At each campus, seniors are talking to students about the importance of education and attending college, giving each a pencil inscribed, “The DVHS Class of 2017 believes in you!” Seniors are also delivering a signed panoramic picture to principals from the seniors that attended the campus, complete with their college commitment.

The Del Valle High School Class of 2017 graduation ceremony will be June 1, 2017 at 3 p.m. at Strahan Coliseum at Texas State University in San Marcos.
