    WILTON, Iowa–On July 12, Wilton Junior-Senior High School seniors still hold out hope that they may have an in person graduation ceremony despite the COVID-19 pandemic. In order to make sure graduates had at least one large, but safe, community celebration, student body president and Wilton senior Taylor Garvin organized a graduation parade for her school May 31.

    Seeing graduation parades become increasingly popular in neighboring communities, Garvin reached out to her classmates to see if they would like to have a similar event. They received her suggestion positively, so she worked with the school’s principal and the City of Wilton to organize the parade.

    The parade proved a huge success. “It was a wonderful celebration with perfect weather,” recalled Garvin. Nearly all of the school’s graduating seniors, including three who joined the military and will leave before Wilton’s July graduation ceremony, participated in the parade.

    As students rode cars, tractors, and even a horse in the parade, many community members spread out along the route and wished them well. “The support we have received from our community has been overwhelming,” said Garvin, adding, “it was extra special to see residents from the assisted living and nursing home cheering us on and holding encouraging signs.”
