About 40 graduates, mainly seniors from Rock Bridge High School, celebrated their accomplishments with a drive-through parade on Sunday in the Thornbrook neighborhood. Residents and relatives lined the streets, cheering on the graduates as an announcer read out their future plans.
“Parents are trying to make up for as much as they can,” Rock Bridge graduate Delaney Fuller said.
The parade, which was led by a celebratory police, fire and ambulance escort, wrapped up with a carside photo op and food trucks at the Thornbrook Clubhouse.
