Wellington High School graduates traditionally end the school year with an all-night celebration known as Project Graduation. The evening typically includes an abundance of games, prizes, dancing and food. Due to COVID-19, the festivities were canceled. Nevertheless, the Project Graduation Committee did not allow the pandemic to stop them from honoring the 617 graduates of Wellington High School’s Class of 2020.
The funds raised by the committee were used to provide every graduate with a stylish backpack stocked with coupons from generous business partners. In addition, all 617 graduates received a $10 gift card. The bags were distributed by the Wellington High School staff at senior checkout.
Throughout the school year, supportive sponsors donated 110 total gifts for the graduates. A random selection process was used to determine the recipients of the gifts. Committee members enjoyed witnessing the excitement and appreciation of the graduates when they distributed the gifts. The committee is proud of the accomplishments of all the graduates and were honored to celebrate the Class of 2020.
