Seniors who have been accepted into at least one college received a small celebration during lunch on April 26 to celebrate their success. The staff awarded 400 graduates of the class of 2017 with cookies, pennants detailing their name and college, a chance to ring the bell and sign an honorary wall.

“I was impressed with the overall college turnout this year,” college and career counselor Linda Brown said. “And I think the seniors were glad to have their achievements recognized.”

This is the bell tradition’s second year. When the CCA opened last year, Brown searched for a way to celebrate not only the applicants, but the college readiness that the CCA represents.

And there it will stand each year in the foreseeable future, another tradition added to the list.
