MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - Dozens of students at Siegel High School spent Saturday making up for a senior prank.

Last week, 150 students covered the school with toilet paper, poured cooking oil on the floor and soaked wrestling mats in water.

School principal Jason Bridgeman originally told a handful of students who did the most damage that they would not be allowed to participate in graduation.

He has since had a change of heart.

Those students now have to perform 25 hours of community service, while the those who did less damage will need to complete eight hours.

“They are going to have more community service hours to do but I think as a group, speaking to them individually and speaking to the whole class, they have learned a lot from this incident and I feel taking from graduation was more than I had to do,” said Bridgeman explained.

Peyton Tracey, a senior at Siegel High School, took part in the senior prank. Although he did not get caught, he still helped with the cleanup effort Saturday.

"I decided it was my duty to give back to Siegel since all they have done for me the past four years,” he told News 2.

It is unlikely the students will finish their community service hours before graduation, so Bridgeman plans to hold on to their diplomas until they do.
