COVID-19 didn't stop our local high schools from having a traditional graduation.
Six feet apart. Masked. But officially done with high school.
The classes of 2020 at Seabreeze High School and Mainland High School were finally able to celebrate their graduations with a traditional ceremony at the Ocean Center on Thursday, July 9. Whether a Seabreeze Sandcrab or Mainland Buccaneer, the seniors were able to walk across the stage as they were supposed to back in May.
