Although their senior year ended abruptly with no warning, our Cut Bank High School (CBHS) seniors persevered while navigating distance learning as well as having many senior memories taken away from them as many senior activities were canceled. One activity that hung in the balance till the last minute was their graduation ceremony. Thankfully the administration at Cut Bank High School realized the importance of this event as a milestone in these young people's lives, and since our coronavirus numbers remained at zero new cases in Glacier County Montana, they decided to allow a graduation ceremony to proceed with strict social distancing guidelines in place.
Each of the 46 students were allowed to invite 10 guests to the ceremony, and each group of guests were seated far enough apart to abide by social distancing guidelines. Before the ceremony the entire group of students met on the front steps of the high school for the traditional group photo. This year the photo looked a bit different as students donned masks that were ordered specifically for graduation with the CBHS wolf mascot on them . This day will be remembered as a historical moment in Cut Bank High School.
