2023 Senior Legacy Walk

Eureka High School Seniors take 'Legacy Walk' of their former elementary schools ahead of 2023 Graduation
Posted on 06/15/2023


June 13, 2023 - Eureka, CA - In an annual tradition, seniors from the Eureka High School (EHS) 2023 graduating class went on a 'Legacy Walk' of their former elementary schools on Tuesday.

Eight local elementary schools received visits from alums, and everyone was eager to celebrate. Many classes prepared for the seniors' arrival by creating elaborate congratulatory signs with words of inspiration. Seniors visited Eureka City Schools (ECS) elementary schools - Alice Birney, Grant, Lafayette, and Washington, along with neighboring schools - South Bay, Pine Hill, Freshwater, and Cutten. 

The seniors paraded proudly in their caps and gowns, complete with graduation accessories, tassels, cords, and stoles, and were greeted with high-fives, cheers, and a sea of signs waved with vigor and excitement!

Seniors then spoke and mingled with younger students, encouraging them to work hard in school and pursue their dreams. They reminisced about their early education - including some playtime on the playgrounds - and saw former teachers and school employees a final time before taking the stage at graduation on Friday, June 16, 2023.

The Legacy Walk was planned and organized by the EHS Student Government Transition Commissioners, Odelle (Della) Cook, Cayden Bluwe, Isabelle West, and Joseph GonzalezFletes, as part of their role in the Student Government Class. EHS Student Activities Director Tera Sanchez oversaw the event.

The participating chaperones, Jeanne Woods, Lacey Lorenzen, Rob Standish, Caroline Needham, Jennifer Johnson, Enrique Gomez, Sarah Cruz, Aaron Coyle, Omar Khattab, and Paul Claussen, helped to make the Legacy Walk possible.

Thank you, to all of those involved, for supporting our seniors.

Congratulations to the Graduating Class of 2023!
