What a creative way to let the kids know school's out for the summer! Regina Ballard is a receptionist at North Lincoln High School in Lincolnton, North Carolina. In a fun sendoff, Ballard changed the words to Etta James' "At Last," serenading the students over the loud speaker. The video is completely going viral now, and she told ABC News she never expected such a response. We love your talent and bravery, Regina! You go, girl!
