Mission CISD students visit schools for annual senior walk
More than 50 seniors from Mission Collegiate High School participated in the second annual senior walk at local elementary and middle schools.
As seniors walked the hallways in their cap and gown, younger students cheered them on every step of the way. The walk was created as an inspiration to the younger generation to continue their studies, and to give seniors a last look before they graduate on June 2.
"Since I came to this elementary, having the kids see me and them knowing that I came from the same background that they did--anything is possible," said Mission Collegiate High School senior Christina Briseño.
Briseño, a migrant student who already has an associate degree from South Texas College, fondly remembers a special teacher in her life.
"They really did make an impact in my life, without them, I probably wouldn't believe in myself," Briseño said.
The two were united on Wednesday.
"Good luck, keep up the good work, and I'm so proud of you," said Briseño's former teacher Roxana Vela.
This year, student scholarships for Mission Collegiate High school surpassed $2 million, double that of last year.
