High School gives graduating seniors one final gift
By Bruce Karnick
With two school years dramatically affected by the pandemic, the staff at Hastings Senior High gave their departing seniors one last gift before graduation. Students were given a block of time to drive through the high school parking lot to pick up a box of goodies, they were greeted by many of the staff members that have been with them on their high school journey. Teachers, counsellors, custodial staff, kitchen staff, office staff, all lined the sidewalk, many holding signs, all cheering for the Class of 2021.
Students heard their names read off, to verify pronunciations before this Friday’s graduation ceremony. The smile on the students faces were hard to miss as they made their way past the excited crowd to grab their box. The box contained their yearbook supplements, commencement booklet, candy, a USB battery pack, a lunch, immunization records, their cap and gown, personal letters from teachers and their diploma.
This year’s graduation ceremony is going to be one of the first truly normal events for the Seniors. The ceremony is scheduled for June 4th, 7:00 pm at Todd Field. The weather forecast calls for a beautiful day with a high of 87 degrees, so it could be a little toasty. There are no limitations on the number of guests that can attend aside from the capacity of Todd Field.
