Triad seniors walk across stage in individual graduations

Triad high school seniors walked across the stage one at a time during their graduation ceremonies on Sunday afternoon.

The ceremonies started at 2 p.m., and seniors could bring up to two car loads of guests.

“It’s nice to be able to be all together, but it’s not the same,” said senior Carsyn Thomas.

Graduates walked across the stage that was set up in the high school parking lot to be called up one at a time to receive their diploma and have their picture taken.

“It’s great that they could do this even under the circumstances because some people can’t even be with their classmates, so I’m glad we got to do at least this,” Thomas said. “This was probably one of the best things they could do in this situation.”

Seniors sat in chairs six-feet apart around the stage in the parking lot, and their guests sat by or in their vehicles and watched as they walked across the stage.

“I have been searching for any safe way to get all of our graduates together for this event,” said Superintendent Vickie Hoffman.

After the ceremonies, a senior parade took place starting at 3:30 p.m. that traveled through Woodstock, North Lewisburg, Mingo ending in Cable.

Seniors and their families could decorate their vehicle and join in the parade to honor the Class of 2020.
