Even though the ceremonies were conducted two months late and in the middle of a worldwide pandemic, the seniors of Mingo Central and Tug Valley high schools' Class of 2020 finally were able to participate in commencement exercises last weekend. The events were conducted on the schools' football fields (MCHS's Friday, July 17, and TVHS's Saturday, July 18) and social distancing protocols were in place. The ceremonies were modified versions of the schools' traditional graduations with fewer speakers, a single file procession of graduates and a hands-free presentation of diplomas; however, the event gave the graduates a proper closure of their senior year.
