The members of the Southampton High School Class of 2020 were presented with their diplomas during a drive-through ceremony on June 26 at the high school.
Although nontraditional, the ceremony still honored the graduating class in a meaningful way. The seniors arrived with their families in decorated cars and paraded to a colorful podium, where they received their diplomas. Each senior was recognized for their accomplishments during their tenure at Southampton High School, as well. The celebration culminated with a cap toss and yearbook signing.
The drive-through was one of many celebrations held for the seniors, whose final year of high school was cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Prior to the ceremony, the district held a drive-through tribute that gave seniors the opportunity to wave goodbye to their teachers and their school. The district also held a virtual ceremony in which district administrators wished the Class of 2020 well in their future endeavors.
