Lyon County High School seniors were finally able to have commencement today, two full months after leaving their compulsory education behind.

The delay was because of the COVID-19 pandemic. School officials were adamant since the beginning of the pandemic that they wanted to offer graduates the closest thing to a normal ceremony as possible at a time when other school districts offered only virtual and drive-through graduations. The hour-long ceremony in the LCHS gym hosted about 200 people, which included about 50 graduates, a limited number of socially-distanced family members for each and a handful of staff and administrators.

More photos are available on The Herald Ledger's Facebook page and in next week's issue of the newspaper.
