PLYMOUTH, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) – Parents and students at Wyoming Valley West organized their own ceremonies to honor seniors Friday night.
Students lined up in their cars outside of the high school for a drive-by graduation parade.
People lined the streets as the event started around 6 PM.
Seniors say they are glad for the community support.
“I was crying on the way up here. I was so happy to see all my friends and family… Even people i don’t know, just waving and saying congratulations. It just felt awesome,” said Jessica Shaver.
Wyoming Valley West says they will hold a traditional graduation ceremony at Spartan Stadium on either Friday, July 10th or Friday, August 7th, provided that the governor’s color code for Luzerne County is green.
