A rally to prevent drop-outs

Gautier schools came together this Thursday for a Destination Graduation celebration.

Destination Graduation is a drop-out prevention program put in place by the Pascagoula School District to raise the graduation rate to 100% over the next five years.

Gautier High School's principal lead the rally, and encouraged the students to stay involved in school. From kindergartners to seniors, the students sat under banners with the year they will graduate.

The goal of the celebration is to inspire the students to not only graduate from high school, but also excel beyond graduation as well.
