Friday, May 12, 2023 – Mountain Brook High School seniors continued the tradition of returning to their elementary schools for a final walk through the hallways on Thursday morning. Students and teachers at Brookwood Forest, Cherokee Bend, Crestline and Mountain Brook Elementary lined the walls to give high-fives and hugs to members of the high school’s 2023 graduating class.
Soon-to-be graduates felt the love as many saw their old teachers and classrooms throughout the elementary schools. Phyllis Farrar, a kindergarten teacher, started teaching at Crestline 13 years ago. She will retire in a few weeks and so to celebrate, her first class of 18 students made plans to stop and visit after the walk-through.
“I got the job the week before the children walked through the door,” Farrar said. “I loved them from the very beginning. They were super special and we were a great little group. I love going out with them and I think that’s kind of a special treat for me.”
Seniors then celebrated on the lower fields of MBHS with live music and food trucks. Graduation is scheduled for Thursday, May 18 at 6:00 p.m. in the Pete Hanna Center on the campus of Samford University. It will be streamed live here: https://spartantv.live/
