Thursday’s graduation marked the 150th for Vallejo High School, although the venerable institution has never had a ceremony quite like this one.
Since 1870, most graduation ceremonies have included the students sitting together in one area, usually Corbus Field, where they would throw their caps in the air collectively. But that opportunity left when the COVID-19 pandemic arrived.
Still, Vallejo High did they best it could to give the Class of 2020 some kind of celebration. A line of cars on Nebraska Street in front of the campus stretched as much as 30 deep at times, as students waited to collect their diplomas and Class of 2020 sign, along with some praise from teachers before they rode off into the sunset.
