Graduation is a rite of passage. It will look and feel very different for the Class of 2020 because of the Covid-19 pandemic. In our new world of virtual graduations and social distancing, WKBT News 8 Now created this page and invited area high schools to share with everyone some of the most memorable parts of every graduation ceremony, the student speeches. These speeches were intended to be given in front of classmates, proud family members and favorite teachers. Since that won’t happen this year, we’re sharing them here so our community can help celebrate these graduates and congratulate them all on the lessons learned.
