Senior Class of 2019 



Senior Evening of Inspiration


Monday, May 20, 2019

7:00 p.m. (students to arrive with gowns, no caps, no cords, at 6:00 p.m.)

Roswell Street Baptist Church

774 Roswell Street, Marietta, GA


The Senior Evening of Inspiration (SEOI) is a non-religious event being held at Roswell Street Baptist Church and is designed to honor the graduating class of 2019.  The SEOI is to celebrate Walton’s senior students and is planned entirely by the senior students.  In January, all senior students were invited to attend planning meetings for committee members to select the SEOI emcees, speakers, and entertainers.  In addition, two Walton staff members will be selected by students to address the graduates.  Both parents and students from previous classes have found the SEOI to be one of the most enjoyable of their entire senior experience.  The SEOI is more relaxed than graduation and there will be plenty of seating and parking for all family members, out-of-town guests, and friends to attend. 


Additional information regarding student attire will be posted in the Walton PTSA e-blast in April/May.  Please mark your calendar and plan to attend what may be one of the highlights of your student’s senior year.
