On a sunny, warm summer day, Sat., Jun. 20, S.S. Seward Institute in the Village of Florida celebrated the graduation of their high school seniors with a car parade. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the ceremony which was to be held on Sat., July 27 has been rescheduled to Sat., July 11 at 10 a.m.
To commemorate the Class of 2020, the PTSA sponsored the senior car parade. Graduating seniors covered their cars with Spartan pride and honked the horns on their cars as they drove throughout the streets of Florida, NY.
The parade was led by the Florida Fire Department and the Florida Police Department. Fire trucks and police cars ran their sirens to alert everyone to come out of their houses to cheer on this amazing graduating class.
High school seniors were smiling, waving, tossing balloons in the air, and were filled with a tremendous amount of happiness as their friends and family watched them drive by.
The graduation drive by parade showed their pride for how far they’ve come and only teaches them to keep going and never give up.
Congratulations to the S.S. Seward Class of 2020. It’s not what anyone expected but you did it!
