Boyle hosts parade of graduates

It wasn’t a conventional graduation day for 193 members of the Boyle County High School Class of 2020, but it was not a conventional school year either.

Schools were shut down in mid-March across Kentucky in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, cutting short a senior year for these students and eliminating milestone moments like graduation.

On Friday, students were able to watch the premier of the school’s virtual graduation ceremony on YouTube. It consisted of clips of each student walking across the stage and receiving their diploma, as well as filmed graduation speeches.

After the video, the students and their families made their way to Boyle County High School, where they were met with cheers and applause from district and school administrators, board of education members, teachers, staff, coaches, and many others.

The BCHS staff put together a coordinated effort to hold a parade for the students. The parade of cars, trucks, and vans left the school and made its way downtown before turning around and heading back to the school where the night ended with a fireworks display for students and their families.

Along the way, students were met with supporters lined up along sidewalks and in parking lots, cheering and holding up signs in support of the graduates.
