Senior prank leads to legal ramifications

“The Smoky Mountain High School senior prank began as a harmless have-a-little-fun prank and went according to plan,” said Ayers during a school board meeting May 23. “It is the actions after leaving the building that are irresponsible and illegal. Students were directed to leave campus, but they returned and reentered the building without permission and trespassed on campus.”
