EHS seniors excited to graduate in traditional way despite early showers


ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WDHN) — Nothing could hold back the graduating wildcats of Enterprise from walking across that graduation stage Thursday — not COVID-19 and most definitely not the rain.

“We went out different for sure, we went out different, the rain was fun,” Tyrone Clark said.

Much like the abrupt end to this school year, halfway through the Wildcats’ graduation clouds rolled in and the rain began to pour down.

“I mean I started off like, my high school like, I was scared and then I finally got used to being at this school and then everything hit and they took prom away and they were talking about taking graduation away and finally we got it,” Meghan Gatewood said. “And nothing in life comes easy I guess!”

Principal Harrison and the staff of EHS put in a lot of work to make this graduation possible while abiding by social distancing guidelines.

“It was great, we did have a little rain shower right in the middle of it, but the kids did great the families did great, it’s going to make it memorable for them for years to come,” Principal Brent Harrison said.

The class of 2020 will go down in history. The seniors of EHS will be one of a few schools that can say they actually walked across that stage to get their diplomas during this pandemic.

Enterprise High School seniors say they are the class of 2020 — the class of vision. And they’ve proven, getting some rain on your glasses doesn’t mean you can’t see the finish line.
