Moultrie- Alaina Parker and her classmates are practicing for a graduation that's only hours away. It's a day this extra-ordinary senior has longed for. Alaina Parker says, " I'm excited about graduation and plus him coming home. It's all overwhelming."
Alaina's husband, Lance Corporal Josh Parker, is finally coming home, after spending over four months in Iraq. Alaina Parker says, "It's been really hard because I had to study a lot harder, keeping him off my mind and balance school and work, so it was lot harder."
Alaina's classmates say they remember seeing sadness and pain in her eyes while Josh was gone. Alaina's classmate says, "It was devastating because she would act like she was happy, but we knew she was kind of sad about not being able to see her husband."
Senior counselor, Deanie Campbell, says she's happy Alaina endured and succeeded academically. Campbell says, " I see no reason why she won't be as successful as she's been here. She's got a lot of basis for it. She's gone through something, and once you gone through something, you can survive it again."
After a year of uncertainty, Alaina says she looks forward to graduating with the Class of 2003, and she's ready for whatever lies ahead.
Alaina and Josh met while attending Colquitt County High school and married in 2002. Alaina says her husband, Josh, will be back in Moultrie this weekend. She says they will live in either California or Moultrie.
