While a parking lot may not seem the ideal location for a graduation, for the 11 Wilson High School seniors it was a great way to celebrate their success Saturday (May 23).

WHS chose to conduct a drive-thru ceremony at their school. Students were allowed to have four guests seated in chairs of honor while other guests could watch from their vehicles.

Each senior wore special cloth masks with the WHS Mustang on them.

Valedictorian Tony Pantoja admitted he was a bit nervous about his speech, even rewriting it a few times.

That said, he said he was excited for what the future held for himself and his classmates. “Graduation Day is the day that every senior has been waiting for,” he said. “After today, we start a new chapter in our life. Today’s the start to a new beginning and I cannot wait to see what the future has in store for us.”
