Congratulations, Class of 2020!

Congratulations, Class of 2020!

Given the historic events of the early part of 2020, the Class of 2020 will forever hold a special place in history as class that had their graduation ceremonies deferred, delayed or denied. Many local celebrations took forms not seen before: car parades, virtual Zoom and Minecraft graduations and diploma receptions wearing gloves and masks along with caps and gowns.
