Traditionally, Palm Beach Central High School’s Graduation Day closes with a fun-filled celebration known as Project Graduation — a safe, all-night, lock-in event for graduates sponsored and funded by parents. Historically, more than 450 Palm Beach Central High School graduates spend a night of celebration at Wellington’s Village Park gym enjoying food, games, music and prizes.
However, due to COVID-19, Project Graduation 2020 was canceled. “Since the event was canceled, funds raised by the Project Graduation committee members were used to recognize all 700 Palm Beach Central graduates,” PBCHS Student Activities Director Donna Baxter explained. “The Project Graduation committee purchased Congratulations banners for the school fence, laundry baskets used for the Senior Checkout event and a farewell tote bag filled with a PBCHS fleece blanket, pen & pencil set and free coupons donated by local businesses.”
Baxter thanked community supporters for their help.
“We would not have been able to provide these graduation gifts for the Class of 2020 without the support of the parents, school staff and the business community,” Baxter said. “The committee wishes to thank the more than 100 businesses who contributed donations to this effort.”
