Plant City’s 2021 senior class gathered by the entrance to the Florida State Fairgrounds’ event center on May 26, hugging friends and taking photos with their families before filing inside of the for graduation.
As a senior class they underwent one of the more unique high school experiences in recent memory as COVID-19 abruptly shifted everything from sports to major events to learning on a day-to-day basis. And with that unique high school experience came a unique graduation ceremony as students entered in a single line and quickly moved to their seats before the main stage once the doors opened in advance of the 8 p.m. start time.
The valedictorian and salutatorian spoke, along with a number of school and county administrators. Taking in their few final moments together as the senior class of 2021.
