What do you do when you are faced with obstacles and adversity? You improvise, and that’s exactly what the Ignacio School District did. In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, the Ignacio High School commemorated the Graduating Class of 2020, within a ‘Circle of Friends’ and a memorable, first-of-its-kind parade down main street, which brought out the community to show love and support of the graduating class of Bobcats. Families decorated vehicles with balloons, signs and streamers proclaiming their support for their graduate, in the Ignacio High School parking lot, Saturday, May 25. Principal Melanie Taylor and Superintendent Rocco Fuschetto led the ceremonies, as graduates received their diplomas, cords, and gifts individually, to cheers and honking of horns. A live-video feed was streamed on the Ignacio School District’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/ignacioschooldistrict.
