With classes not resuming this school year, WCHS officials are working trying to piece together a plan that will still allow them to honor the Class of 2020 and their accomplishments, but some of those plans are still up in the air as the district awaits approval from the state.

One event that will happen regardless is a virtual graduation, to be held Friday, May 15 at 8 p.m. The online event will {span}include feature speeches by students, special awards, individual senior recognition and the formal declaration as graduates of Webster County High School by Superintendent Rhonda Callaway.

Officials are currently also working on plans for a drive through graduation, but that event is awaiting approval from state officials. If give the go ahead, it will be held at 6 p.m. in the WCHS parking lot. Each senior will be a passenger in their family’s vehicle as their name is announced and their photo taken, and then they will be a part of a parade back to their hometown and elementary school.

Board members and Callaway expressed an interest in doing something else for senior later on, but that is yet to be determined.
