MCALLEN, Texas - Hundreds of McAllen ISD High School Seniors visited elementary schools across the city.
It's part of the 2018 Senior Walk. This annual event aims at giving an emotional charge to elementary children who look up to the graduating seniors. But most important it gets children excited about the opportunities the district has for them.
Dr. J.A. Gonzalez, McAllen ISD Superintendent says, "We want to ensure that as we move forward, we continue to capture all that momentum, because we know that these kids are going to go out into the real world, our seniors... And make a big difference. So we want our elementary students to know that they can too, and just really give them hope for a bright future."
Dr. Gonzalez adds that he hopes to see the elementary school students doing the same thing for others in the future.
