Last week, the streets surrounding the high school campus were filled with energetic and optimistic families, friends and community members as they cheered on hundreds of vehicles filled with the students in the graduating class of 2020. Escorted by the Glen Cove fire and police departments, the parade began at Gribbin Elementary and traveled to the high school campus where students received their final yearbook and took photos with district administrators including Superintendent Dr. Maria Rianna, High School Principal Antonio Santana and Assistant Principals Katie Prudente and Allen Hudson III. Glen Cove Mayor Tim Tenke, City Council Members Gaitley Stevenson-Mathews, Marsha Silverman and many teachers from across the district joined the celebration to congratulate the students.

Having adorned their vehicles with balloons, signs, painted windows and even one very large face mask, the students displayed an array of emotions but mostly all smiles, shouts of joy and enthusiastic horn hoking. The Glen Cove High School class of 2020 may have missed out on many traditional celebrations, but there was no lack of pomp and circumstance proving this graduating class is one that will be remembered for resilience, strength and hopefulness.
