Assemblyman Cliff Crouch (R-Bainbridge) joined his colleagues in the Assembly Minority Conference today calling on the governor to allow schools to be able to host graduation ceremonies. Since March schools across the state have been closed and conducting class remotely. Now that the school year is coming to an end and the state is beginning to slowly reopen, Crouch and the Assembly Minority are hoping that the governor will allow the state to conduct safe, socially distanced graduation ceremonies with limited guests.
Graduation ceremonies are momentous occasions in students lives, said Crouch. It is an achievement that they will never forget and something they have worked so hard for their entire life. Right now, the class of 2020 is having this taken from them, a fault that is entirely not their own. As we continue to return to normalcy after our battle against COVID-19, it is my hope the governor will allow schools to conduct safe, socially distanced graduation ceremonies, so that students will not miss out on this momentous occasion. Even if they are delayed till the end of summer, I still believe that they should have the opportunity to celebrate and be honored by select group of friends and family.
