A Wichita high school principal says he was brought to tears after a senior prank didn’t pan out the way he expected.
A student recently asked North High principal Sherman Padgett to hold a bucket, while monitoring students passing in the hallway. He declined, joking that he feared she would dump fish eyes into it.
He reluctantly held the pail later in the next passing period after his secretary said it was part of a senior prank. Bracing himself for the unknown, the principal was surprised to find students drop notes into the container.
Each card featured handwritten notes from students, with expressions of gratitude, shared memories and inside jokes.
Padgett says he plans to keep all of the notes.
