— Senior-class photos dating to 1951 are grouped on the walls of the Plainview-Rover High School auditorium, built in 1939. The faces of those seniors looked down upon this year's 15 graduating seniors as they marched to the stage in the packed auditorium May 21.

The small senior class at this school in Yell County allows for a personalized graduation ceremony. Each senior picks music, ranging from Tim McGraw to AC/DC, to play in a slide show of their lives. The audience roars with laughter at photos of the students as sticky-faced babies, then watches them progress through kindergarten and gradeschool years. Theslide show finishes off with photos from the 2007 senior trip to nearby Nimrod Lake.
