The Class of 2018 bid their final farewell as students on the Macon East campus at Senior Send-off.  Always a special day for the seniors and their families, the students enjoyed one last breakfast with Mrs. Vickie, followed by a slide show sure to bring a tear to every parents eyes, recognition of the honor graduates, and finally the traditional balloon release.  Tyler Watson was named as the class Valedictorian, and Bryson O’Malley will address the class as Salutatorian.  A number of students were honored to receive the 13+ pin to be worn over their heart at graduation.  These students have attended MEA since Kindergarten or preschool.  Several members of the graduating class have spent just one or two years at Macon East but have quickly learned what it means to be part of the Knights family.  The eclectic Class of 2018 has succeeded in the classroom and in athletics.  Earning over $4.8 million in academic and athletic scholarships, they have set a school record.  They also earned 4 State Championship trophies this year in volleyball, boys basketball, softball, and baseball.  It has been an honor for the staff and faculty of Macon East to teach, coach, and mentor each member of this class, and we wish them all the best in their future endeavors.
