Honking rang out for miles as hundreds of families gathered to celebrate their high school graduates.
Seniors at University Laboratory School came together for a parade Tuesday. It was the first time the class of 2020 has been together in months.
Graduates lined the sidewalks of LSU while loved ones stayed in their cars and cheered for them.
“It’s really special, not a lot of seniors get to do this,” Taylor Bush said.
“I’m really grateful they threw this for us and made it special, based on the circumstances,” Catelyn Greene said.
Students were told they were going to have a commencement ceremony in August, but it wasn’t until this week when the administration supervised them with this early celebration.
“It’s just a way for us to express how excited and happy we are for our seniors,” Amy Westbrooke, superintendent said.
The seniors were happy to be together to celebrate this big accomplishment.
“It feels great knowing all of the support we’re getting from the school and our parents and our families because we’ve been going through rough times this semester,” Solomon Miles said.
