As of Friday, graduation season is now in full swing in Vacaville.
However, the season did not start with the Class of 2021 — which will have in-person ceremonies throughout next week — but rather the Class of 2020, which had to forego traditional ceremonies in favor of them due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Now, they will have their due, starting with Buckingham Collegiate Charter Academy, whose 2020 seniors graduated at Vacaville High School’s Tom Zunino Stadium Friday evening.
The last year has been a tumultuous one for Buckingham, which saw a name change — from Buckingham Charter Magnet High School, the continuation of distance learning and a relocation to a bigger space in the former Country High School campus on McClellan Street. However, the familiar sight of maroon caps and gowns filled the stadium as Buckingham began its return to normalcy.
