BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) -

Seniors at North Brunswick High School held their heads high Thursday as they walked the halls where their education began.

Wearing their graduation caps and gowns, the students walked proudly as elementary and middle school students cheered for them over Pomp and Circumstance.

"I hope it was inspirational for the children here today," North Brunswick High School senior Chase Coston said. "I hope it's something they will remember so that they are like, I want to graduate so that I can do this and inspire someone else. I hope it's a chain reaction."

The goal is to help younger students create a vision for their futures and is the continuation of the school system's Celebrating What's Right initiative.

Seniors were also given the chance to thank teachers who inspired, encouraged and supported them throughout their educational journeys.

"Humble beginnings are really important and should be important to everyone," Coston said. "You need to remember where you come from because without a past, there will be no future. So, I'm ready to take what I've learned throughout my years of grade school education and use them for higher learning."

Seniors at South and West Brunswick high schools will get to parade the halls Friday and students at Early College High School and Brunswick County Academy will take part in the event Monday.
