    Pocomoke High Schools seniors are finally graduating. They never thought it would come so quick, after a long 4 years the day is finally approaching.

    “I am overwhelmed, I have to buy a dress, shoes, get hair done, I need know who is coming, and I need more tickets, we only get 5. It’s stressful,” said Piajah Johnson See the source image

    Graduation is a lot more stressful and complicated than people would think, there are a lot of things that needs to be done before anyone is allowed to walk across the stage. Students need to wear the right colors, have all their credits and make sure all of the obligations are paid.

    “I’m ready it is exciting, but at the same time it’s also stressful I mean we only get 5 tickets I have a big family and people do not want to sell their tickets,” said Diamonique Taylor.

     It seems as though everyone is more concerned with getting all their loved ones to come and watch them graduate, but with only 5 tickets and a class of 95 it is nearly impossible to find more.

    “I am glad because I’m ready to go to college and start my new adventure in life,” said Samantha Dingus.

     There is an a whole new life waiting for them, also for some it will be the first time they will be on their own. No one will be there for them and it is scary.

    “ For me, I am ready to go but it is also different, I’m going to Savannah State and it is 10 hours away. If I need something my parents can’t just coming running to me, I have to figure it out on my own, said Le’Tia McCready

    In 25 days these seniors will be walking across the stage, saying their final goodbyes and thank yous to all the people that helped them get there.
