THE WOODLANDS, TX - Legacy Preparatory Christian Academy (Legacy Prep) in The Woodlands, Texas celebrated the class of 2020 Friday night. Seniors caravanned through the Legacy Prep campus in a Farewell to Friday Night Lights while Legacy faculty, staff, administrators, families and friends cheered them on.

“Farewell to Friday Night Lights was a really great event and a really touching way to send off the seniors. It was incredible seeing how many from the Legacy family showed up and how excited they were to celebrate even in some very difficult times,“ commented Legacy Prep senior Harrison Shook, who will be attending Belmont University in the fall.

Legacy’s class of 2020 enjoyed one last Friday night on campus while the lights shined on the baseball and football fields. Social distancing spectators supported the 33 seniors from their cars parked on the Legacy campus. Cell phones, flashlights and car lights all brightened up the evening.

Legacy Prep senior Mia Martinez, who will be attending the Naval Academy Preparatory School before transferring to the Naval Academy, stated, “Friday night was so special but was also bittersweet. I realized my teachers and coaches will not get to teach or coach me again. I’m going to miss Legacy so much, but I’m so blessed I was able to attend and create many memories and bonds.”

While the last quarter of their senior year has been unique and unprecedented, Legacy Prep has been hard at work planning unique ways to celebrate the class of 2020. The night of lights reminded the seniors that their future is bright regardless of how their high school journey will be ending this year.

According to Legacy Prep Athletic Director Clint McDonald, “What a great night for our Seniors! We had a lot of support from our Legacy families. The atmosphere was electric and it was great to see all of seniors and the big smiles on their faces. We may have created a new Legacy tradition!”
