HHS senior celebrates graduation.

It was not the graduation celebration the Class of 2020 always thought it would have. There was no big stage to walk across, no bleachers packed with cheering family and friends, no hugs or high-fives shared between graduates. 

But even without the typical pomp and circumstance, the heart of the celebration remained. Graduates stood tall with confidence as they received their diplomas. Families cheered from their cars, waving signs, honking horns and crying with excitement. Teachers and staff burst with pride as they waved goodbye to graduates one final time.
