Students from Mosley High School and their principal came to tonight’s Lynn Haven commission meeting with a hope to keep tradition alive.

They discussed the proposed moving of the Mosley homecoming parade route from Highway 77 to Florida Avenue.  77 Is now a state-owned highway.

One student wrote to Lynn Haven commissioners and the mayor to bring light to safety concerns students had about the proposed route change.  Mosley high principal Brian Bullock told council members he would like keep the tradition of over twenty years intact while ensuring the safety of parade spectators and participants.  After discussion, the parade route was unanimously approved by the commission, but an application will have to be approved by the Florida Department of Transportation.

Principal Bullock told us, “Mosley and the city of Lynn Haven have had a great partnership for 40 plus years, we are the community school of Lynn Haven.”

Mosley High student Jacob Pickle added, “it’s just something you always look forward to and I think I decided to fight for this because it is something that someone should always be able to look forward to, it’s just a high school tradition and a rite of passage.”

Mayor Margo Anderson told Principal Bullock  that since Highway 77 is state-owned  the Florida Department of Transportation has the ability to deny any application for parades in the future.
