FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (WJBK) - Some students in Michigan are, once again, getting national attention for their creative school ID photos.
It's a tradition at North Farmington High School for seniors to dress up for their ID photos. Some channel their favorite TV or movie character, while others portray their favorite meme. The students have been sharing their creations on Twitter using the hashtag #NFID19. You can see some of the tweets below.
"The seniors, we build up to this moment from our freshman year. It started in 2013, and it's just a really cool tradition that we get to have," Ciera Smith, senior class president, told us. "It's cool because the underclassmen get to watch us and see us, and it sparks their ideas for what they want to do their senior year."
"[The students who sparked this idea] wanted to make a mark. At North, we really operate on trust with our students and on giving them opportunities to be leaders and to try things, and this is one that's really panned out for us because we set a very narrow set of rules, and they operate within them and they have always thrived with it," school administrator Joe Green says.
He adds that the best thing about the tradition is he always hears people say the pictures made their day, or made them laugh.
"We've had people ask to come to North on a regular basis, to attend or work there," he says smiling. "It's been pretty awesome. It's been a fun ride."
Ciera says her mom wanted her to impersonate an old photo for her ID, but she went with a meme instead.
