The City of Comanche will take a moment to recognize and celebrate the Class of 2020 with a parade traveling down Main Street next Friday.
City Manager Chuck Ralls, along with parents of graduating seniors, plan to honor the class with the parade at 6:30 p.m. May 22.
“I just think it’s a great opportunity to be able to recognize the seniors,” Ralls said. “They’ve put in a lot of effort through the years.”
With the current graduation ceremony for the Class of 2020 postponed, the city and parents want to express how much the graduating class means to the community.
“To get to this point and for them to not be able to walk in front of their peers, in front of their family members and friends, this is just a way the city can partner with the school and the students to make sure they are recognized,” Rall said.
The parade celebration will adhere to the social distancing guidelines set by the CDC.
Currently, Superintendent Julie Bills plans for Comanche High School’s graduation are tentatively set for June 5 at the football stadium. Following the CDC guidelines for social distancing and protocols in place at this time, guests will have a specified number of tickets and will enter through specific gates to maintain minimized foot traffic. The graduation ceremony will stream live as well for those who cannot attend.
