By Jeff Steers JTV News In a year that is abnormal, members of the 2020 Concord High School participated in an outdoor graduation ceremony on Sunday. Only this one was not on a football field. Members of the CHS class of 2020 participated in a drive-by diploma ceremony and parade on May 31. That was the original date scheduled for graduation ceremonies. The COVID-19 pandemic closed school for the 2019-2020 year in April. Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer closed schools nearly two months early because of the coronavirus. She has allowed for meetings for groups of only 10 people. Nobody is quite sure when large gatherings will be allowed in Michigan or around the United States.

The school has scheduled a scaled down graduation for Sunday, June 14, with smaller ceremonies in the cafeteria. On Sunday, NCS sponsored a senior parade for the class of 2020. Hundreds lined the short parade route that took the seniors from Napoleon Elementary School, to middle school, and finally past the high school. The school district recently announced individual graduation segments to honor the seniors. “Our next-best option is to have individual segments to honor our seniors and turn those into a virtual ceremony/slide presentation similar to what other schools have already done,” administrators posted on the school’s Facebook page. “The virtual/cafeteria event does not necessarily have to be the only commencement related event. “We felt we should put something in place now in case…
