Seniors had something to celebrate after returning from winter break
As mandated by the state of Alabama, every senior in the state must pass a 100-question civics exam in order to graduate. The state requires a minimum score of 60% to pass, but our senior class averaged an 80% on the exam. Two of our seniors, Raamiah Gaddis and Jeiby Garcia, scored a perfect 100 score. Some of our seniors were able to take a picture as they celebrated being one step closer to graduating. Photo by SGA
