Noblesville High School had its Class of 2021 graduation celebration on Thursday, June 3.
Seniors participated in a sunrise breakfast on the football field, a graduation parade and a virtual drive in/tailgate commencement ceremony.
The parade featured NHS faculty performing live music, teachers and staff from all academic levels (elementary, middle school, high school and district) cheering on students, and a stage for graduates to walk across and get their diploma.
Later in the evening, families watched the commencement ceremony "drive-in style" with picnics, games and fireworks.
Seniors were surveyed regarding their preferences for graduation plans and their top priorities were being all together (not splitting into smaller ceremonies) and to have a stage component.
NHS accommodated both of these priorities, while ensuring the event was safe for all students (including those who may be immunocompromised or have family members who are).
