Local seniors return to elementary schools for “senior stroll”; graduation ceremonies will be held Monday

MADISON – Graduation is just around the corner for Madison City Schools.
As seniors prepare to strut across the stage to get their diploma, they had the chance to stroll the halls of their elementary school for a walk down memory lane today. It’s a tradition in Madison where graduating seniors who attended elementary school here take part in their school’s Senior Stroll.
The younger students high fived and cheered the older students as they paraded by in the caps and gowns. Some faculty would be overheard on the sides remarking how grown up their former students are.
The 2023 graduating ceremonies for Bob Jones and James Clemens high schools will be Monday, May 15, at the Von Braun Center. Bob Jones goes first at 2 p.m. Graduation for James Clemens will begin at 7 p.m.

Last year 985 graduates (534 from James Clemens and 451 from Bob Jones) received their diplomas, making it the largest senior class ever from Madison City Schools. This year could rival or exceed those numbers.

In just 24 years, Madison’s senior class grew from 333 in 1998-99 to almost 1,000 last year.
