SPRINGDALE, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — The Springdale School District found a unique way to honor its 2020 graduates safely and emphatically.
John Paul Hignit celebrated the commencement of his high-school days with a socially-distanced graduation that included balloons and a full cap and gown.
This isn’t a normal situation because of the COVID-19 outbreak, Hignit said, but he’s grateful for the support he’s received from the school and the community.
“It was definitely tough, but as a family and as a community, we kinda pulled together,” Hignit said. “We were able to get through it all together.”
