LOS FELIZ—John Marshall High School held a car parade for their 2020 graduates on Tuesday, June 16. The Los Angeles County School District held a virtual graduation ceremony in the month of May for all schools in the district, as well as a virtual prom.

In an effort to flatten the curve across the country, state officials closed schools in March and transitioned to online learning to finish the school year.

In an interview with the Los Feliz Ledger, John Marshall High Principal Gary Garcia stated how happy she was to do this for the students. “All the memorable moments were taken away from them this year,” Garcia told the Los Feliz Ledger.

During the seniors’ virtual graduation, they were able to be recognized with a picture and a caption. The car parade allowed the seniors to dress up in their cap and gowns, as well wear their cords for honors and distinction. The graduates were able to be in between decorated cars, while being celebrated by family, friends and staff.
