With pots and pans in hand, the seniors of the Class of 2020, accompanied by their parents, drove around the campus, May 15, to be celebrated by the school’s faculty and staff, who lined the perimeter with noisemakers of their own. Scheduled on the seniors’ last day of classes, the drive-by was intentionally designed as a full loop around the campus – a circle, just like the class ring – a symbol of the never-ending sisterhood, which has become the hallmark of the school.
