BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) -

Here's a graduation ceremony these students will never forget.

Seniors at North Brunswick High School turned their tassels Saturday morning celebrating all the hard work they put in over the last four years, but it's what happened next that they'll always remember.

In a video posted on the Brunswick County Schools Facebook page, two students stand behind the podium on stage after turning their tassels. They say, "cue music," and then walk off stage to join the rest of their class in the audience. 

Michael Jackson's "Man in the Mirror" starts playing over the speaker system as a few students stand up and start doing choreographed dance moves.

Every few lyrics more and more students join in until they all stand up and start doing the choreography in unison. 

As it turns out, the song has more meaning to the students at North Brunswick High School than just being a feel good song.

Their principal came up to the podium after the flash mob had finished and explained to the family and friends in the crowd, what that song meant to the students at the school.

"To the crowd, this is what this song means to us:" the principal said. "This year has been really traumatic and after every event in the country, we would play that through our speaker and we would promise to each other that that wouldn't happen at North."
