- Published: May 26, 2020
Yellow Springs High School will host a “drive-in” style graduation ceremony for the Class of 2020 on Wednesday, May 27.
The special event will begin with a senior “clap-out” parade of Class of 2020 vehicles through the village, followed by an outdoor screening of the ceremony and presentation of diplomas to graduates in their vehicles.
Starting at 8:25 p.m., seniors and their family members will travel from the high school down West South College Street to Xenia Avenue, then turn onto Corry Street and Dayton Street toward Antioch University Midwest, where the graduation ceremony will take place. Villagers are encouraged to stand on their porch or lawn and cheer on the seniors.
The outdoor ceremony at AUM will be displayed on a 45-inch screen for seniors and families to watch from their vehicles. Student names will be read as the seniors drive past the screen and are awarded their diplomas.
Yellow Springs Schools also honored its 2020 seniors with congratulatory yard signs and banners displayed in downtown Yellow Springs.
