COVID Graduation

A month later than planned, this 2020 class of high school seniors attended commencement ceremonies in their football stadium. Social distancing for the 300 students required the entire field. Each student was allowed only four guests (tickets checked at the gate) and they were assigned to certain areas of the bleachers to prevent groups larger than 4.

The first outdoor graduation for this high school since 1979. A sunny June day with air temperature in the low 90’s raised the astro-turf field temperature above the century mark. Speeches were short and to the point.

This group of seniors will be remembered as the COVID Class of 2020.

Thought for the Day: The road to success is dotted with many tempting parking places.
