While COVID-19 restrictions precluded an en masse commencement for the Gloucester High School Class of 2020, graduation organizers put together five days of brief commencement ceremonies that honored and celebrated each one of the class’s 414 graduates individually last week at GHS.
“All of the comments I have received have been very positive,” GHS principal Craig Reed said as the ceremonies continued last Thursday. “Everyone seems to be very appreciative of what we have done to make it special for every graduate.”
School division superintendent Walter Clemons was also at some of that day’s ceremonies, and likewise said that the graduates and their families had expressed only positive comments for how GHS handled the graduation ceremonies.
“We put it off hoping we could include more people,” Clemons said. “So after the person limit increased to 50 on June 10, we could allow the graduates to have 10 guests. A few requested even more and we felt like we could honor that also.”
