ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Members of the World of Inquiry School senior class of 2023 marched to Rochester City Hall on Tuesday morning. This wasn’t a protest but a celebration. It’s the college march.

During the march, students mail letters declaring their college and career intentions and an expression of gratitude for an adult who has supported and guided them.

It’s also an opportunity to celebrate the students and their college aspirations. The seniors hope this inspires their under-class members to follow in their footsteps.

“It’s like a step closer to success you know, like oh we’re halfway through our senior year,” said Jasmyne Floyd, a senior at World of Inquiry School. “We’re finally seniors since, we’ve wanted this since kindergarten maybe or first grade and we’re all like year. I can’t wait to graduate and now we’re closer and getting closer and closer to graduating.”

News10NBC spoke with Floyd after she was nominated for the U.S. presidential scholars program, one of the nation’s highest honors for high school students.

She is one of only 25 students statewide to receive this nomination. She plans to go to Monroe Community College after graduating and study psychology.
