They See Me Rollin’: Memorial High School Senior Car Parade 2021
The Memorial High School Class of 2021 came out to celebrate their upcoming graduation at the second annual Senior Car Parade last Saturday, May 8. Streamers, loudly-clanging soda cans, car paint, school flags, and giant blow-up mascots were just some of the ways seniors decorated their cars, trucks, and vans.
The parade started at 11 a.m. Seniors and their drivers met at Memorial Church of Christ across the street from campus. The parade, led by the Memorial Villages’ fire and police departments and the Memorial High School JV and Varsity cheerleaders, traveled east on Gaylord before turning south and traveling down Piney Point Road. Family, friends, and neighbors lined the streets as seniors rolled by. The parade ended at Ecclesia Church. Community members cheered and music blared from speakers in the bed of trucks and from the Memorial High School marching band.
Last year during quarantine, the MHS PTA looked for an in-person way to safely celebrate seniors. The car parade was born. The event was such a hit last year that the PTA brought it back for the Class of 2021.
Congratulations to the Class of 2021. Keep cruising! You’ve got a bright future ahead.
