Seniors make college announcements and continue tradition of ringing bell

Nine seniors led college announcements making their choices known on April 19 in chapel. As part of the announcements, seniors also had the opportunity to ring the bell that once stood at the original school in Culleoka, Tenn., where Sawney Webb and brother, John Webb, began their classes. Announcements will continue in May.
