THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Peshtigo Graduation to Include Parade on July 2
Issue Date: June 24, 2020
Peshtigo High School will host the Class of 2020 Senior Graduation on Thursday, July 2 at 5:30 p.m. with a car parade. Every graduating senior can have a vehicle participating in a city wide parade. Vehicles will line up at Peshtigo High School. The school asks that residents along the parade route have lights on and signs displayed support the senior class.
The parade will be led by the Peshtigo City Police and Fire Departments. In addition, the parade route will travel by city parks, local businesses, and churches as these areas are great places to view the parade. The Class of 2020 banners will continue to be displayed throughout the city all summer long. Principal Chad Sodini said, "We wanted to honor our graduates and have some sort of graduation ceremony."
At the conclusion of the parade, vehicles will return and park at Peshtigo High School. Seniors will then have their names announced as they "walk the stage" located in the Emery Avenue parking lot. When all seniors have walked the stage, Peshtigo Schools will release the Virtual Graduation Ceremony on the Peshtigo Middle/High School Facebook page at approximately 7:30 p.m. The virtual event will include valedictorian Maria Powers, salutatorian Anica Stark, the 74 graduates and guest speaker.
The class motto is "Whatever you are be a good one" class flower is white carnation with blue tips; and class colors are blue and white.
