Cloud-covered "Senior Sunrise" was still a good time

After two days of bright sunshine, uncomfortably high temps and humidity September 6th and 7th, members of the Class of 2024 who wished to enjoy one of their privileges at the start of their final year at Newark High School didn’t exactly experience the “Senior Sunrise” they had hoped for.

But while they were greeted with cloudy skies, instead of a picturesque sunrise, some members of the class just took it in stride and had fun at the event that began about 6:15 a.m. on the tennis courts. They enjoyed donuts, music, games of tennis and volleyball and just simply being with each other for 45 minutes before the school day began.

Several seniors stopped what they were doing and quickly posed for some candid photos taken by NHS Principal Kelly A. Zielke and AP Addie Klaehn.

Senior Brooklyn Graham, Student Council President who helped organize the event, said this about “Senior Sunrise”: “It’s a nice way to see everyone get together and celebrate how far we’ve come.”

Who knows, maybe the sun won’t be cloud-covered if the Class of 2024 attempts another “Senior Sunrise” at the end of the school year in June.
