The seniors from Matanzas High School in Palm Coast, Fla., near Daytona Beach, received their diplomas on Sunday morning — one car at a time.
After their traditional high school graduation ceremony was canceled as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, the Flagler County School District knew they’d have to get a bit creative for their 2020 graduates. But that didn’t stop the school’s community from banding together to come up with a unique way to celebrate their accomplishments.
“When the pandemic hit, we pulled together a group of seniors, and started having conversations about how we … make things happen for the senior class,” Matanzas High School principal Jeff Reaves told Yahoo Life. “Graduation was the biggest event, and so that was the goal — to make sure we had some sort of graduation.”
