With cars decorated with balloons and streamers, dozens of families came together at Southern High School to celebrate the Rainbow Graduates of the Class of 2020.
Graduates from George Washington High School, John F. Kennedy, the J.P. Torres Success Academy, and others commemorated their success with a drive-thru graduation at the Southern High School campus.
Rainbow graduates are high school students who needed to earn half to a full credit to complete their senior year. This was the last graduation ceremony to cap off the school year.
At Southern High, the graduates were able to not just get their diploma, but also take pictures with their families at dedicated photo booths.
PNC spoke with a couple of graduates, who say that they’re proud of their achievements.
Shawn Enriquez, Tiyan High Class of 2020, said: “I feel great! I’m just happy that I made my parents happy getting my diploma.”
Sichiuo Kichiro, Simon Sanchez Class of 2020, said: “I’m really excited. Still thinking about my plans.”
The PNC team would like to congratulate every member of the Class of 2020!
