Montgomery Locals June 14, 2017

By Staff | Jun 14, 2017

Instead of a traditional senior prank, some members of Montgomery Area High School’s Class of 2017 opted for a campout on the school lawn the night before their graduation. Tents were set up, a large industrial-sized cooker was hauled out, and outdoor games were played. According to Brooke Rupert, the idea came to some of the seniors during a calculus class a few weeks prior.

Kelly Kratzer said, “We just wanted to get everyone together one last time. We invited the whole senior class to just have fun.” Morgan Bloom added, “It’s a lot of fun for all of us to do something towards the end of the year with each other.” Jacob Thomas and Lucas Drick cooked hotdogs and sausages for their fellow classmates on a large cooker that was built by some seniors earlier in the year who were part of the Technology Students Association. The cooker is adorned with the outline of the Red Raider mascot and has a metal plaque with the names of the students on it. The cooker “was our mark on the school” according to Jacob.

During the evening some underclassmen rode their vehicles past the school and honked their horns in tribute to the soon to be departing upper classmen.The seniors enjoyed their evening, and proved their maturity and consideration for others by keeping their campout quiet and low key.

The Class of 2017 has 54 members and last Friday’s ceremony was held at the field house and broadcasted live over the internet.Congratulations to the members of Montgomery Area High School’s Class of 2017! Best wishes as you pursue your dreams!
