"I think it was awesome!" said D'Iberville High Principal, Cheryl Broadus. "It was very emotional when the whole group started coming down the road and I saw them coming. Just a great group of kids and they're missing out on a lot. They're missing out on their Academic Signing Day, their Senior Awards Banquet, prom. This is just something we wanted to do for them and it was amazing! So wonderful to see these kids!"
