UTICA, N.Y. – A virtual ceremony to honor the Proctor High School Class of 2020 was held Friday evening.
The event was aired on TV and online, so family and friends could watch along.
Teachers and Principal Joshua Gifford shared messages for the students.
"To the students --This day June 26, 2020, marks the pinnacle of your high school career. This day also marks the ending of a school year like no other. In a year that was cut short, you must embrace the personal, and collective moments and achievements that you've had throughout your years in a school,” said Gifford.
Earlier this week, the school hung 650 congratulatory banners around the city in honor of the graduates.
