Frederick Douglass High School held the 2020 graduation ceremony Friday at Hickman High School auditorium. Seventy-five graduates attended the ceremony with their friends and family members. Due to the rain, the ceremony, originally planned to be held outdoors, was temporarily moved to the auditorium. Principal Eryca Neville gave a speech and then graduates stepped onto the stage one by one to take their diplomas and white roses and have a photo with Superintendent Peter Stiepleman.
