2020 Seniors graduate in walks and parades instead of ceremonies

Celebrating the Covid Class of 2020

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 News) – Utah seniors from the Class of 2020 haven’t let the pandemic slow them down; across the state schools are holing modified graduation ceremonies. 

In the Granite School District, Taylorsville High and Hunter High held parades. Students walked along a path of teachers and staff, all cheering them on, with their family walking and driving right beside them.

Student government at each school got to help plan the events and brainstorm solutions to social-distance graduation and say they’re very pleased with how it all turned out.

 Raquel Falabella, a Taylorsville High graduate, walked the parade route with her parents both of them wearing their class jackets from their Taylorsville High days. She said walking with them made it much more special, “It puts it into perspective, my family’s been there for me through my whole education and they’re the ones who are with me today.”
