Dunkirk High School’s Class of 2022 had a gorgeous morning Thursday for the annual Senior Sweep.

Clad in Marauder maroon T-shirts, students spread through city neighborhoods and parks to clean up garbage.

They gathered around 8:30 a.m., got divided into groups, then met back up at City Hall about 10:30 a.m.

Mayor Wilfred Rosas said the effort is a collaboration between the students, senior class advisers, the school district and the city.

“We support it every year, and we’ll be feeding them some pizza and lunch,” he said.

There were close to 40 senior students from the Class of 2022 that participated in the event. This event allows for the DHS graduating class to gather as a group one last time to give back to their community.

The mayor later took the opportunity to talk with the 2022 Class President, Sebastian DeGolier, along with the 9-12 House Principal of the Dunkirk High School, Josh Tedone and co-class advisers, Mike Green, Charmaine Moreland and Stephanie Wisniewski.
