WICKSBURG, Ala. (WDHN) — The school staff at Wicksburg High School planned a car parade for its graduating seniors.
After not having a prom due to COVID-19, seniors came together in their cap and gowns with all smiles for the second to last time. Their cars were decorated with class of 202 signs, school colors as well as their future college.
One graduating senior says he’s proud of the hard work the school has put in behind the scenes during the pandemic for this special event to take place.
“Every 2020 graduate knows its not the way it should have went but I am actually very very very proud of Wicksburg for putting this on. This just shows we’re more family than other places,” Kade Snell said.
The parade started at the Wicksburg Volunteer Fire Department, down AL-123, and ended at the high school with family members and friends waving to their loved ones.
Dustin Woodham, a senior and Panthers football standout, says it was awesome to see the Wicksburg family waiting on them to drive by.
“This was an experience to remember all the support. Wicksburg is a very supportive school and community. I’m very proud I went to Wicksburg High School,” Woodham said.
The school will have their graduation at the National Peanut Festival Fairgrounds May 22.
