The Brooklyn City Schools creatively honored its senior Class of 2020 through an individualized commencement ceremony for all graduates during the week of May 18th with a symbolic walk across the stage in the District’s beloved auditorium. With each member of the Class of 2020 given a 15-minute increment, three family members were invited to see their senior enter the auditorium and approach the stage while Pomp and Circumstance played aloud. Once on the stage, seniors received their diplomas while being recognized by Principal William Wingler, Superintendent Dr. Mark Gleichauf, and one Board of Education member. A picture was taken of each senior, along with a video of their respective walk across the stage which will be compiled along with the respective speeches and music for the traditional Commencement ceremony. This compilation video will be available for view on Sunday, May 31st, the day of the regularly scheduled Commencement. Many thanks to the staff including Mr. Chris Ross, Mrs. Jackie Holko, Mr. Chris Kaspar and Mr. Hare who helped with these mini ceremonies. The pictures Mr. Kaspar took will be available on the District website on May 31st for all graduates and their families. On behalf of everyone in the Brooklyn City Schools, congratulations to the graduating members of the Class of 2020, a job-well-done on all of your collective and individual accomplishments and all the best in your future endeavors! Go Hurricanes!
