The Clovis High School Class of 2011 has left a lasting legacy: Members made a video aimed at portraying all aspects of their school life — and featuring nearly every one of the 600 graduates.
In a lively, nearly 11-minute video posted on YouTube, the students at the school near Fresno lip-sync to two songs and lead viewers on a tour around campus. Nearly all parts of student life are presented, among them the athletes, the cheerleaders, the folklorico dancers.
The video, "Clovis High Class of 2011 Lip Dub," was notable because the students shot it silently — the other students on campus were taking state-mandated exams and the seniors couldn't distract them.
It also was shot in a single take and wasn't edited.
"We thought it would be a great way to showcase the school spirit, unity and contributions of this senior class," said Chrissy Prandini, the school's activities director. The video, she said, also paid tribute to the teachers, advisors, coaches and administrators who helped the graduates find success over the course of their educational lives.
