On Friday (June 8), Highline Public Schools threw a long-bomb touchdown of a party for graduating seniors, who jammed the Museum of Flight in Tukwila to celebrate their milestone with none other than Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. Flanked by aircraft, the students high-fived @DangeRussWilson as he exited a 787 and made his way to the stage. Students heard positive, powerful messages from Wilson, as well as from Alaska Airlines CEO Brad Tilden, retired NASA astronaut Dorothy â€œDottieâ€ Metcalf-Lindenberger and Highline Superintendent Susan Enfield. Then 13 outstanding seniors were surprised with college scholarships presented by Alaska Airlines and its â€œChief Football Officerâ€ Russell Wilson. CONGRATS SENIORS!
Thank you @AlaskaAir & @ShauntaRHyde for such an amazing celebration of our inspiring @HighlineSchools seniors. Each of them is brilliant, beautiful & brimming with promise. They make me so very #HighlineProud. Letâ€™s #GraduateHighline! pic.twitter.com/SKFxrdaDHE— Susan Enfield (@SuptEnfield) June 8, 2018
