WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (WETM) – Watkins Glen High School is giving 2020 high school seniors, a celebration to remember.
Today students and administration from the 2020 class of Watkins Glen High School celebrated graduation, with a lap around the 3.4-mile road course at Watkins Glen International.
The graduation parade was to celebrate the accomplishments of the school year, as schools around the United States have canceled graduations due to the coronavirus pandemic.
As a gift to the students, the president of WGI Michael Printup wanted to remind them that their accomplishments are not forgotten.
[We’re] focusing on the kids and what they’re missing this year and how to give them something special that nobody else will ever get. We’re only going to do this year. So it’s special for the kids. I got a big smile, you can’t see it, but I guarantee you I got a big smile.Michael Printup, President of Watkins Glen International
