High school principal organizing 125 mini graduations for seniors

Something Good

GLOUCESTER COUNTY, NJ (CNN/WPIX) — A New Jersey high school has come up with a creative and safe way to celebrate the class of 2020 — 125 mini graduations.

After weeks of mulling it over with the school administrators, Deptford High School Principal Jeffrey Lebb realized the answer wasn’t one large ceremony, but a whole bunch of small ones.

“We’re doing two students at a time, and they’re only allowed to have two guests with them,” Lebb said. “And were going to do 15 minute ceremonies.”

You could call it a graduation marathon.

With 250 graduates on deck, that means 125 mini ceremonies that will take place over four and a half days.

“It’s obviously not the real thing where all the kids sit together on the field and they throw their caps in the air which is also a great thing, its not that, but I think we all feel it’s the best thing we could do,” Lebb said.
