Community celebrates Hancock High School seniors
Hancock High School seniors are celebrating an important milestone in their life with a twist we're seeing all across the country due to COVID-19.
One by one dozens of cars drove down Quincy Street in Hancock Saturday for the seniors’ graduation parade. The community stood alongside on the sidewalk cheering the seniors on.
Afterwards, the high school hosted a closed graduation ceremony for only students and direct family members to follow social distancing orders.
"It's a privilege to be able to know each and every one of you, and to be able to create so many memories that we'll never forget, and now today, we will create one last memory together celebrating our greatest achievement,” said Willard Bal, Salutatorian.
During the ceremony, Vanessa Dulong performed an original, titled "Quarantined." Jamie Sintkowski performed an original rap, titled "Distancing."
Hancock Superintendent Steve Patchin says district staff is so proud of these talented students and their original arrangements.
