Student and parents could be seen standing along Center Street in Downtown Mount Olive late Tuesday afternoon as a long line of Southern Wayne High School seniors drove past as part of the parade honoring Mount Olive area graduates. Students decorated their vehicles with balloons. Town of Mount Olive officials took part in the celebration of the students. Mount Olive Chamber of Commerce President Julie Beck came up with the idea a few weeks ago and went full steam ahead in putting together the parade to honor the graduates. A similar parade will be held Tuesday, May 19, for Spring Creek High School, North Duplin and Mount Olive residents who are seniors at Wayne Early Middle, Wayne School of Engineering, Wayne Country Day, Faith Christian, and Wayne Christian will participate in the second parade. The parade line up will be at Carver Elementary School (400 Old Seven Springs Road, Mount Olive) from 5:00-5:45 p.m. with the parade commencing at 5:45 p.m.
