The Corona virus has taken away a lot from our state’s young people. Everything from cancellations of entire sports seasons, to proms and graduations, the traditional milestones marking the transition from adolescence to young adulthood were taken away by the necessity of fighting the COVID-19 epidemic,
A group of NCHS families came up with a superb idea to recognize the graduating seniors of the class of 2020 and to give them some of the recognition they had earned, but had lost through no fault of their own. On Friday, June 5, the NCHS class of 2020 had a parade in their honor at Parc Natchitoches. The graduates drove through the parking area of the Parc in a caravan of decorated vehicles as they were cheered on by their friends and family standing along the route. It was a great way to end a most trying school year!
The Natchitoches Parish Journal would like to commend the members of the Chief family who came up with this idea and made it happen. We would also like to extend our best wishes to the young men and women of the NCHS Class of 2020 as they go out to make their mark upon the world. Make us proud!
