Graduation Ceremonies for Class of 2020

The time has finally come! This week kicks off our series of graduation ceremonies postponed from May.

We are thrilled and proud to honor these graduates, whose senior year was anything but normal and did not include many of the traditions of the last year of high school.

We congratulate them all on their perseverance and accomplishment!
