WORTHINGTON - Senior pranks can often get out of control, but the 2017 Worthington High School class opted to leave a positive mark in their school.
WHS teachers were taken by surprise when they arrived to school Thursday morning, as they found bras hanging in entrance doors as well as on some windows. Next to them, a small sign read “All-Day Parking $5” and “Thanks for the support.” As students went through the doors, WHS senior Doria Drost and other seniors explained to teachers that all proceeds would go to breast cancer awareness.
“I was a little nervous because I was like “Oh no, what if I get in trouble? … but I kind of threw caution to the wind because I knew it was going to a good cause,” Drost said.
Drost said all seniors helped plan the prank and agreed to do something fun, but they also wanted it to have a positive impact on the community.
“I think it was a pretty good message to send everybody,” she said. “We were able to do something positive but still have fun with it - especially since it’s the last week of senior year and everybody is so stressed with graduation.”
WHS Principal Josh Noble said he was supportive of the prank when Drost approached him the day before and told him what they had planned for Thursday.
“I thought the fact that they chose to put it into something positive and raising money for something that is really important was actually a really cool thing,” Noble said. “I asked teachers to bring small bills that they were willing to donate.”
Thanks to the teachers’ donations, the senior class raised $159.
In addition, Drost said the class also wanted to thank their teachers for helping them achieving their goals and supporting throughout their high school years.
“We wanted to show our teachers that we appreciate them for the things they do for us and the time they put in, because a lot of them put in time before school or after to help us not only raising our grades but giving us life advice,” Drost said.
