BELMONT, N.C. — Saturday, a Gaston County high school got the chance to celebrate their graduation day on the road, since the COVID-19 pandemic changed everyone's plans.
South Point High School in Belmont, North Carolina had a graduation parade in which students took part in a celebration unlike any other before them. The students wore their caps and gowns and celebrated while driving around the school parking lot.
It may not have been the graduation party they envisioned before COVID-19, but the students made the best of the situation.
It's the latest way schools and communities in the Charlotte area have tried to make graduating seniors feel special. Students at Marvin Ridge High School came together virtually to deliver an inspiring song to graduating seniors on Zoom, and several area communities have hosted parades through neighborhoods to celebrate seniors.
