Houston County High School holds socially-distanced graduation ceremony


HOUSTON COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) — Thursday morning, Houston County High School held its graduation at the Peanut Festival Fairgrounds.

Graduates had to sit six feet apart before they went up on stage to receive their diplomas.

“It’s pretty fun, I mean, it’s really different,” said graduate Searcy Woodrudd. “You can see with the social distancing and stuff. They got the toilet paper for 2020, so it’s a really cool twist. It’s kind of the same as a regular graduation but just more spread out.”

Cottonwood and Ashford also held their ceremonies Thursday morning.

Rehobeth and Wicksburg will hold theirs Friday, May 22.
