With car horns beeping instead of the usual clapping of hands, 93 members of the Chilton High School Class of 2020 graduated on Saturday afternoon in a ceremony held in the school parking lot because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Numerous precautions were taken from the start of the day to its conclusion in an effort to keep both graduates-to-be and their families safe.
Anna Criter, president of the Class of 2020, introduced guest speaker Jeff Fergie by saying, “This year our class chose Mr. Ferge to be our commencement speaker. Mr. Ferge was many things to all of us during middle school—a teacher, coach, and mentor, but above all he gave great advice that many of us still remember. I think it’s a general consensus that in eighth grade, the highlight of our day was walking into World History. In that class, we didn’t just learn about history, but more about the bigger picture in life itself.”
