Show Low High School principal Farrell Adams says they had 140 seniors sign up for the lock-in out of the 180 who were a part of the Class of 2010.
Those seniors, he says, brought 60 guests, leading to a record number of lock-in participants. "That's double of what we've had," he said. Adams says the Parent Teacher Student Organization began meeting in November to plan for the grad night lock-in. He said, the effort took a lot of time not only to plan, but to secure the donations, activities and other things that made it a fun night. Adams said, not only does grad night provide students with a drug-, alcohol- and tobacco-free environment to celebrate graduation, but also a chance to cut loose with those they spent four years, or perhaps longer, of school with. "It gives the kids one last opportunity to come together as a class," he said. The night was not without incident, however. One graduate dislocated his knee early on in the night on one of the inflatable structures. Show Low Police officers overseeing the event tended to him; personnel from Show Low Fire arrived to take him to Summit Healthcare. Adams says he has been in contact with the family and learned the senior was released from the hospital the next day and is recovering at home. He says the family complimented the school for their handling of the incident. Over 30 volunteers helped out at grad night, serving as chaperones or overseeing the different activities. Adams says the school's two resource officers were also available all night, as was Show Low School District Vice President Brian Merrill. Adams said, they had a huge budget for the lock-in, much of it coming from donations. He said, Navajo County donated $6,000 specifically for grad night, while individuals and businesses in the Show Low area donated over $7,000 in cash and gifts. He said, he is impressed with the amount people gave despite the current economic climate. "I would like to compliment the community of Show Low," he said.
