SOUTH WINDSOR, CT — Under the most unusual circumstances ever for a town graduation, 333 seniors from South Windsor High School officially received their diplomas in a car commencement ceremony Wednesday afternoon, culminating their high school days which necessitated a tremendous show of resilience in view of the coronavirus pandemic.

The car commencement ceremony, available for viewing here, began at 4 p.m. Seniors and their families were allowed to arrive in one car during four designated waves, depending on last name.

When a student's name was called, they exited their vehicle, crossed a stage for their diploma and had a professional photo taken. Vehicles then proceeded to the end of the school driveway to receive a gift from Operation Graduation.

As an added bonus, a continuous moving car parade occurred at Timothy Edwards Middle School from 4 to 8 p.m. The four-hour window allowed families to attend on their way to graduation or afterwards, depending on the time the graduate was scheduled to receive his or her diploma. Staff members from schools throughout the South Windsor district were on hand to support the Class of 2020 by waving while remaining socially distant.

Valedictorian of the Class of 2020 was Van Anh Tran, while Elizabeth Malone earned the title of salutatorian.

A tribute video to the seniors was made public Tuesday evening, and may be viewed below.
