Graduation looked much different for the Class of 2020 — far different than any of the students, parents or school administration could have ever imagined.
Thanks to sheltering in place during the COVID-19 pandemic, schools closed early all over the country, including Bulloch County. That means that all local graduations were cancelled.
Or so it seemed.
All Bulloch County high schools held drive-through graduations May 15, 16 and 18 to celebrate the students, their accomplishments and their resilience. The schools graduated a limited number of students at a time, and each student was allowed two car-loads of guests to watch from their vehicles. Crowds cheered from inside vehicles and the backs of pickups as the county's best and brightest received their diplomas.
