402 East seniors walk stage

by | Jun 10, 2020 | Education, Latest

The 402 members of the Class of 2020 at Wylie East High School brought their high school years to conclusion Saturday morning, June 6, when they crossed the stage at Wylie Stadium to receive their di­plomas.

Because of concerns about the COV­ID-19 pandemic that caused the suspen­sion of classes in March, commencement was moved to the stadium this year to al­low adequate spacing among graduates seated on the track and guests in the stands.
