A select number of graduating seniors looked back on their lives through the revival of time capsules that they buried four years prior.
Mrs. Bethany Mahan, current junior high and former senior high English teacher, returned to the high school on May 3 to assist with what she deemed the “Big Dig.” The “Big Dig” was a one and only time event in Red Lion history where a senior class had permission to dig up a time capsule they buried as freshmen.
One of Mahan’s former students, Taylor Griffith, suggested the idea to Mahan when they were reading the 1983 play “Our Town” by Thornton Wilder. The time capsule in the play inspired Griffith and her class to bury one of their own.
