Seniors from Sparta High School were honored by the community on May 29 with their own graduation parade.
With schools shuttered in March to help stem the spread of the coronavirus, the graduates — like those all over the country — missed out on end-of-year pomp including taking the stage to flip their tassels in honor of completion of high school.
In addition to a virtual senior awards night on May 20, school officials joined with the Village of Sparta to plan a graduation parade down the hill on Spartan Drive and along Division Street. Each student was invited to decorate a vehicle for the event.
Sparta High School’s graduation ceremony is planned for 6:30 p.m. on June 25, location and other specifics to be announced.
