Last Thursday (May 25th),  Lincoln County Sheriff’s deputies charged multiple students with trespassing after breaking into North Lincoln High School in the late evening hours of Monday (May 22nd). 

School officials stated the incident occurred as part of a “senior prank.” They also stated they had previously advised all students that they would not be allowed to enter the school during the customary event. Students were also advised that criminal activity would not be allowed to pass as a “prank.”

After entering the school, the students sllegedly ransacked a number of classrooms and offices and painted vulgarities on interior walls.

Deputies and school officials identified 12 students involved and each of the students has been charged at the request of the Lincoln County Schools.  Eight of them were charged as adults:

  1.  Quinton Cook
  2. Seth Patrick
  3. Skyler Sifford
  4. Jaiden Sellers
  5. Gage Servoss
  6. Alexander Jones
  7. Luke Walker
  8. Jacob Smith

All of those charged are 18 years old.

The Sheriff's Office issued a news release Sunday (May 28th) saying the investigation is ongoing and additional charges may be forthcoming.

A so-called 'senior prank' also occurred last week at Burns High School in Cleveland County.  In that incident, culprits greased floors and door handles, put potted plants in commodes in bathrooms, stacked desks, and scattered teachers' personal belongings.

Burns High Principal Jennifer Aberly said she thought a few students were going to put up streamers and balloons - but arrived the next morning to find significant damage in the hallways and classrooms.

Another 'senior prank' resulted in damage at Sun Valley High School in Monroe.  

In 2021, a 'senior prank' at East Lincoln High School resulted in damage to the school and buses. 12 students involved in the prank admitted to their involvement and were charged.
