Although the rain looked like it may interfere with the Loganville High School graduation ceremony, already almost a month late, the clouds cleared, the rain stopped and a rainbow blessed the event. Before the sun completely set on June 19, 2020, graduates from the LHS Class of 2020 took to the field. There were 362 graduates in the LHS Class of 2020 and in the end, they were able to have an almost normal graduation ceremony.

Although there was a delay because of the rain, and then to get the audio equipment and the chairs dried off, students were able to parade out onto the field, take to their seats and listen to inspiring speeches by LHS 2020 valedictorian Abigail ‘Abby’ Lassiter and salutatorian Jenny Mullis as well as members of student government. As was the case with the Monroe Area High School graduation ceremony, families in the stands were grouped together but social distanced from other groups, some students wore masks and hand washing was actively encouraged after students received their diplomas. But outside of the disruptions to last couple of months of their senior year and those few differences at the graduation ceremony, the LHS Class of 2020 was able to end their school year in traditional style.
