CARL RUSSO PHOTOS: It was a rolling celebration to honor years of hard work.

Pinkerton Academy and its hundreds of seniors making up the class of 2020 celebrated the end of high school with a celebration parade Monday afternoon, June 8.

Monday would have been the actual commencement date for the class if COVID-19 hadn't taken hold.

More than 100 vehicles lined up near the Derry high school campus, decorated and ready to wind around the buildings, with teachers and staff ready to wave and cheer as seniors drove by.

Many wore their caps and gowns. Some vehicles posted signs of thanks to teachers. Some had personal messages of what lies ahead.

Pinkerton Academy Headmaster Timothy Powers said all efforts were made this year to make the class of 2020 feel special amid some very unique circumstances.
