Line 89 is graduation tradition in Cabot. The day that the senior class goes to Verizon Arena, in Little Rock, to practice for graduation is their last bus ride as students. So to honor their accomplishment of graduation, the whole town lines the route that the buses take from the high school out of town - Route 89. Hence the tradition - Line 89. The elementary schools, the middle and junior high schools, all walk to the road to line 89 as the seniors take their last bus ride. They make banners and wave and cheer. It's a great tradition. Since they load the class alphabetically, Samantha was on the first of the 13 buses it took to transport all 704 seniors to Little Rock. They kids all waved with their classes at school, but, of course, all the parents, and happily in our case this year, grandparents, also go out and cheer for the graduates.
We had a sign and balloons, too, and let Samantha know where on the route we were, so she could wave at us.
There she goes. Off to graduation rehearsal. Congratulations, Samantha!
