East Grand Rapids — Wealthy Elementary fifth-graders finished up the school year with a Walk of Fame, cheered on by their kindergarten and first-grade peers, who shook pompons and passed out many high fives.
The event culminated the elementary years for fifth-graders, who now move on to East Grand Rapids Middle School.
