With COVID-19 postponing graduation ceremonies across the country one, New Hampshire high school has found a unique way to still hold its graduation ceremony.
Kennett High School teamed up with Cranmore Mountain Resort to hold its high school graduation ceremony on its ski lift, free of charge. The graduation takes place in June with 174 graduating seniors.
“The response so far has been very positive,” said Kevin Carpenter, principal of Kennett High School, in a CBS interview. “Most families wanted an in-person experience and not just a virtual ceremony or a drive up ceremony.”
“This is definitely not that, but it still is not the full traditional graduation — and we will need to maintain social distancing practices. But given what is going on in the world, this is a great way to celebrate the achievements of these young men and women,” said Carpenter.
