Harrison Central High celebrates Class of 2020 with senior parade

High school seniors will definitely be a part of history as some end of the school year celebrations were canceled due to COVID-19, but that didn’t stop Harrison Central High School.

Today, they honored the Class of 2020 with a car parade, sign distribution, and a time capsule. Things kicked off at Crosspoint Church and ended on the HCHS campus as seniors received yard signs and other things they’ll cherish forever.

The seniors are appreciative of everything the faculty and staff put together and looks at their current situation as inspiration for when times get tough down the road. Senior Payton McQuillan said, “This is a troubling time, you know, with the virus, but the class of 2020 is forever going to be strong. We’re probably going to be the strongest class out of high school. We are ready for graduation on May 30th, even though it’s not traditional, we are still excited.”

Senior Erin Mixon said, “This is like phenomenal that our teachers would go out this far and make sure we could still come together even though we are social distancing and all. It means a lot to me that I get to finish my senior year with some things.”

After graduation, Payton will be headed to USM to major in biological sciences and then onto medical school. Erin will be attending the University of South Alabama.
