JACKSBORO, TN. (WLAF)- Saturday night will mark the end of high school for the 2020 seniors. In a ceremony that is being held later than usual, and for a brief moment almost didn’t happen, the seniors will graduate all while spaced six-feet apart.
When the Pandemic emptied schools in March, many were left wondering if seniors would get be able to walk across the stage at all. It has taken the coordination of several teams but just under 300 seniors will make that walk tomorrow night.
From security to lights to music, all aspects have been carefully coordinated, said Cara Beth Nidiffer of Campbell County High School.
Previous restrictions have been lifted, with the exception of the graduates being spaced. Spectators are being asked to adhere to social distancing guidelines and wear masks, Nidiffer said.
The last graduation CCHS was held on the football field at the high school in 2011. Since then, ceremonies have been conducted on the campus of LMU at its basketball arena allowing for plenty of seating, more than enough ground level parking and climate control.
