TALLASSEE, AL (WSFA) - Graduation ceremonies are special, no matter what age. There was something a little extra special at this year's kindergarten graduation at Tallassee Elementary School. It was the first ceremony for teacher Beth Noble.

Noble has been in the classroom for 18 years, but this is her first year in kindergarten.

"They are a clean slate and so eager to learn," said Noble. "They love school and they love me,"

When it came time for the ceremony, she came up with a fun idea.

"I had a parent come to me with the idea. So we got a dress and I let them design and color what they wanted. It looked great," Noble said.

She says the students were so proud and did a great job.

"She looked good," said student Bentleigh.

"We all drew on it," said Troy.

It was more than artwork. It was an outfit. She wore it to the graduation ceremony.

"A lot of people gave me funny looks at first until people realized it was their artwork," said Noble. "I was emotional and thought, what an incredible keepsake this is,"

Who knows she may have inspired the next line of fashion designers, at Tallassee Elementary School out along County Road 12.
