Harrison Central High School holds graduation at Coast Coliseum

Many high school seniors were unable to have a graduation ceremony due to COVID-19 restrictions.

However Saturday night, Harrison Central High School was able to provide a modified graduation to celebrate its class of 2020.

Two hundred and 89 of the 347 students in the senior class participated in the socially distanced ceremony.

Students were also given the option to stop by the school and pick up their diplomas instead.

Graduates were seated six-feet apart and each graduate was allowed up to four guests in order for there to be proper social distancing in the audience.

Harrison Central Senior Jordan Gabriel tells News 25 what he thought about his school making the effort to give its students a graduation despite the pandemic. “First off I didn’t really think we’d have one, but they pulled it off and I’m glad for my last year in high school we can get to graduate. So it means a lot. I’m going to miss a lot of my friends and just goofing around in class. It was kinda fun.”
