Blue Ridge Schools are planning a drive-thru graduation ceremony to honor their seniors.
Superintendent of Blue Ridge Schools, Susan Wilson explains they will allow their seniors to drive up at their circle drive in front of the high school. The Illinois State Board of Education deemed a drive-thru graduation would not be allowed but Wilson says activism prevailed and now their event will go on.
According to Wilson, they will have speeches followed by students pulling up, getting out to accept their diplomas, get a quick picture and there will be a parade through town to honor the seniors.
Wilson says they considered all options when discussing graduation and because students will be off to the next thing in their lives over the summer, they did not feel that was an option for them. She looks forward to having all her students back together one last time.
