Seniors from Walton High School, Freeport High School, and Paxton School gathered at Walton High School to participate in Senior Empowerment Day on Wednesday, October 25, at Walton High School.
Students moved through rotation to different stations where they had the opportunity to interact with representatives from local agencies and professions, post-secondary institutions, military, as well as staff members in an effort to provide them with resources to make good decisions about their post-high school career path.
Presenters shared information on topics such as banking, cooking, interviewing skills, veterinary medicine, emergency services, fire and rescue, law enforcement, nursing and pharmaceutical, musical theatre, and education.

Students at PHS loaded a school bus full of supplies for victims of Hurricane Michael, this past week. On Saturday, members of the PHS faculty and staff headed to Sneads in order to deliver supplies to the members of the community. The people of Sneads were so grateful for the supplies. Members of the Sneads High School volleyball team helped the PHS volunteers to pass out supplies and serve 155 barbecue plates. Way to demonstrate your PRIDE, PASSION, and PURPOSE in EPIC proportions. Submitted by Kalli McMillan
