Graduations offer same joy with different look

The walk across the stage may have been replaced with a decorated vehicle driving up, but the joy of graduating high school was still easily seen in Door and Kewaunee Counties this weekend. Sturgeon Bay and Sevastopol High Schools hosted drive-up ceremonies Saturday and Sunday while Algoma let their students take a stroll on the Crescent Beach Boardwalk before accepting their diplomas. Algoma valedictorian Arissa Kirchman relied on her classmates to address what they missed about not being in school for the last two months.

Sturgeon Bay and Sevastopol both released their virtual ceremonies over the weekend. In his virtual commencement address, Sturgeon Bay High School Valedictorian Nicholas Herbst focused on the perseverance the class of 2020 has shown.

Sevastopol co-valedictorian Madisen Duginski quoted Starlord from Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy and referenced other comic book heroes to speak about what they gained during the time they lost.

Southern Door held its virtual ceremony and their diploma presentation event last week which allowed the class of 2020 to walk through its halls one last time. Gibraltar will host its graduation ceremony this Sunday. You can see additional graduation coverage at
