WADENA (KDLM) - Wadena-Deer Creek students hosted a Senior Sunrise Tuesday to celebrate the first day of school.
Senior students arrived to the school football field in the early morning hours to watch the sunrise and celebrate the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year.
Emma Mehl, a senior at WDC says she was inspired to organized the Senior Sunrise after an abrupt end to last year's school year due to the pandemic, "after such an abrupt end I felt like it was good to have something scheduled before you just jump right in...and it sounded like a really fun way for the Seniors to have an event together."
Emma plans to organize a Senior Sunset to celebrate graduation in the spring as a close to an unprecedented and challenging school year due to the pandemic.
