The delayed start turned out to be perfect timing as
the skies cleared and made way for the 50 graduates to be escorted
through town by police and fire trucks.
The seniors took a trip down memory lane, driving past Mount Pulaski
Grade School and Zion Lutheran School, before ending back at MPHS.
As the seniors headed towards the high school parking lot after the
parade route was finished, Mr. Morgan handed each student their
diploma. The seniors then gathered in a large circle in the parking
lot and as a drone flew overhead, they tossed their caps in the air.
Confetti soon followed, as did appropriately for the Class of 2020,
rolls of toilet paper flew through the air.

It has certainly been a unique situation the Class of
2020 was forced into this year, but this group is resilient in every
way. The smiles these seniors flashed Sunday night were proof this
group really did rise above and make the most of the hand they were
Congratulations, Class of 2020! You truly deserved to be celebrated
with a parade!
