School unveils graduation Plan C
After COVID-19 put a stop to the first two commencement plans for the Lincoln High School Class of 2020, the school has announced a three-phase event on Sunday, May 31 to celebrate seniors while adhering to social distancing requirements.
Part one is a video presentation featuring the band playing “Pomp and Circumstance” and a performance by the choir, speeches from students and administration, and other elements. Parents and seniors will receive a link to the video at 11 a.m. that day. The link will also appear on the school website.
Distribution of diplomas will begin at 2 p.m. outside the foyer doors on Garden Street. Students will arrive in vehicles with their families, each students will exit the car wearing their cap and gown, receive their diploma and return to their car. The roll call of graduates will be broadcast on Lake Hits 95.
Lastly, there will be a reverse parade for graduates along 10th Street. Graduates will stand by their signs on both sides of the road near Underwood Park. People will be able to drive by from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.
“Since 10th Street is a busy street this summer we feel it will be a neat way to celebrate our students,” according to the announcement. A broadcast on Lake Hits 95 with interviews of parents, teachers, coaches, and administration will accompany the parade.
