The Ninnekah High School Class of 2020 finally participated in a graduation ceremony on Tuesday, June 16th. The original graduation date, which had been set for early May, had been cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Thirty-four seniors walked across the stage Tuesday night. Exchange students had planned to walk as well, however they had already returned home. Click here to watch replay of graduation livestream video.
This year's senior class missed out on many events as their school year was unexpectedly cut short. They missed most spring sports, activities, banquets, awards ceremonies, and even their senior prom. Family, school, and community members have stepped up to honor these students, showing them that they are not forgotten.
Congratulations to the 2020 Valedictorian, Kaylee Crutchfield, and to the 2020 Salutatorians, Morgen Carter and Montana Dinsmore.
