MEDFORD, Ore. -- Before high school seniors enter the real world, they're taking a trip down memory lane. Hundreds of seniors from North and South High Schools got to walk through the halls of their old elementary and middle schools Friday.

McLoughlin Middle School Principal Linda White said this is the second year the school has done the walk for grads.

"Our staff is just thrilled to be able to see some of the students that they haven't maybe seen for four years, and so we know that all the teachers and staff members from kindergarten all the way through have contributed to the success of the graduates so it's a way to share that," White said. 

South Medford High School Senior Lizbet Cortes said it was a thrilling experience to re-visit her old stomping grounds.

"It was really exciting seeing the halls that I once walked through like four years ago," Cortes said. 

McLoughlin Middle School 8th Grader Dylan Craig said he is proud of the seniors for all the hard work they've put in over the years.

"I get to see all these people graduate four years of high school and they're about to go to college and after that they're going to enjoy their life, it's amazing," Craig said. 

South Medford High School Senior Elijah Peters said it's nice to see the hard work pay off.

"I feel extremely accomplished it's a great feeling to finally be done and knowing I did it," Peters said.
