LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - The Hudson High School graduating class of 2014 took some of their final steps as public school students in the very hallways where they took their first steps.
The seniors walked the halls of W. F. Peavy Primary in their caps and gowns while kindergarten students lined the walls and cheered them on.
The seniors did it as a lesson to teach the younger kids that with hard work and dedication, they too can make it through and graduate.
The high school students said they did it to not only inspire the kids but to be role models for the kids.
"I think it sets a good example for the community and gets them more aware at a younger age of graduation, and, you know, it's never too early to start to prepare for your future," said Hudson High School senior Noah Pitts.
Hudson High School senior Kaydee Burgess said it's all about setting an example.
"Just take a walk through the school and just give the kids a good example of what they are going for in life," Burgess said.
The Hudson High School seniors will take their final walk as a high school students later tonight.
