Biking Kenowa Hills seniors punished [WoodTV8]


Senior prank rolled over school officials' toes


WALKER, Mich. (WOOD) - As high school seniors get set to walk commencement, toilets are exploding, lockers are getting graffitied and doors are getting super-glued.

The vandalism is part of the tradition known as senior pranks.
 
But a decision by Kenowa Hills seniors to do something a lot less harmful has drawn the ire of their principal.

The plan was to hold a bike parade as a nice, non-destructive, healthy senior prank.
 
Seniors called police for an escort, and even called Walker's mayor, who rode in the parade.
 
"Police escort, with the mayor, who brought us donuts. ...The mayor brought us donuts..." said a group of seniors following the ride. 
But school official weren't told in advance, hence the word prank, and were not happy with the event. 

They kicked the seniors out of school for their last day and threatened to keep them from walking in graduation ceremonies set for May 30. 

Cellphone video caught audio of principal Katie Pennington in a post-prank gathering in the school's performing arts center. 

"...Get your butts home. You're not participating in senior walk today."
