2020 Graduation is One to Remember!

2020+Graduation+is+One+to+Remember%21

Graduation was held at Redbank Valley Municipal Park in Fairmount City. Graduates and family were to arrive in their decorated vehicles at 5:30-5:45. After many months of quarantine students were finally able to catch up with each other. When the ceremony started, students sat in chairs six feet apart from each other. Mrs. Rupp opened the graduation ceremony with announcing the Honors and High Honors students and also students who had received scholarships. She then asked the Salutatorian, Madison Moore, and Valedictorian, Lauren Smith, to say a few words. Mr. Michael Stitt added some keynote words for the students. While the class song, “Five More Minutes,” was played many students sang along, laughed and smiled with each other. Mrs. Rupp presented the Class of 2020 and Dr. Mastillo presented the Diplomas, with Mr. William Renninger representing the Board of Directors. After the ceremony had finished, cars were escorted by our local volunteer fire departments from the park through New Bethlehem, while New Bethlehem Police Department was on traffic control! Many people lined the sidewalks with signs, cheering and congraduating the graduates! The Class of 2020 will always be remembered as the “different” class!
