The Northwestern State University Elementary and Middle Lab Schools conducted a Senior Sendoff Friday, May 21. It was to pay tribute to the graduating seniors who attended both schools.

The group of seniors paraded through the schools while “Pomp and Circumstance” played over the intercom. As the graduates walked by in their cap and gown, current E-Lab and Middle-Lab students lined the halls to cheer and congratulate them.

This was a sentimental farewell from the faculty and staff at NSU E-Lab and Middle-Lab who had the honor of teaching theses students. The Senior-Sendoff is a new tradition for the Lab schools that will continue throughout the years.

NSU E-Lab and NSU Middle Lab principals, teachers and staff would like to congratulate the graduating seniors and wish them in their future endeavors.
