"Friday morning marked another year of drive-thru end-of-year celebrations at Gateway High School in Aurora.
Groups of seniors waved from truck beds, hung out of windows and cheered through sunroofs in brightly-decorated cars decked out in orange and black, the school’s colors. Groups of teachers and families cheered from the sidelines, waving pom-poms and noisemakers.
The event was DJ’d by the Drop 104.7, and seniors got free food from Chick-fil-A.
Andrea Hernbloom and her family came out to cheer her brother Erick Covington wearing matching shirts with a photo of him and other members of the school’s football team, which went to its first state championship this year.
'We’re so proud of him,' said Hernbloom. 'He’s overcome a lot of adversity.'"
