Broughton High's 400 graduates got to each take a trip to the top of the school's bell tower to leave their mark. The post-graduation tradition dates back to 2005, but some signatures date back to the 50's. Almost every inch of the walls, windows and floors are inscribed with students names. The school held their commencement exercises in Holliday Gymnasium in Raleigh on Tuesday, June 10, 2014.
