HOULKA – Senior at Houlka Attendance Center had an unconventional graduation experience last week.

The students, who had their senior year cut short due to COVID-19 graduated in individual ceremonies over the course of two days on Thursday and Friday.

Students were given a 15 minute time frame for the ceremony and pictures, and they were allowed a limited number of guests as well.

The ceremonies, originally scheduled to take place in the gym, were moved outdoors, to the greenspace in between the gym and the Central Office Building.
