QHS graduates celebrate social-distancing style

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

QHS seniors donned their caps and gowns Saturday morning for a graduation ceremony that aimed to respect social distancing practices.

Dozens of vehicles lined up to parade down Main Street past onlooking family and friends in front of the high school before heading home.

Seniors who worked to organize the event said while it isn't a replacement for an in-person ceremony, it is nice to have a way to celebrate their accomplishment.

"I feel like I still want to do [an in person graduation] but I feel like just having all of us here together the day after our graduation kind of celebrating as a class and not just in our families is really nice for us," said co-organizer Grace Shepard.

"Graduation is the thing that you work so hard for like over 12 years of schooling," said co-organizer Julianna Eden.

Seniors decorated their vehicles in various ways, some came out in classic cars and one even came out in a vintage tractor.
