DIRK SHADD | Times Seminole High School Class of 2018 graduates sport their white crocs as they prepare to line up for their Commencement Ceremony at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg Wednesday afternoon, May 16, 2018. Several girls graduating wore white Crocs, that were donated by the Crocs company. Sarah Agee started a campaign to get free Crocs for all the girls. She tweeted at Crocs: "How many Rts would it take to send all the senior girls at Seminole Senior High School white crocs to wear at graduation?!" And the company tweeted back, "2018, obviously." The kids (and their parents) quickly amassed 2,108 retweets and Crocs came through with 8 cases (125 pairs) of their Classic Croc Clogs -- free. DIRK SHADD | Times
