The Class of 2021 sit in their caps and gowns waiting to walk across the stage and receive their high school diplomas on May 29.

River Valley High School’s Class of 2021 graduated in an outdoor ceremony on May 29.

The ceremony is typically held in River Valley High School’s new gym, but was held outdoors on the football field this year due to COVID-19 precautions.

“Your community is what helps you through something like a global pandemic, your community is there to help when things get hard, and even though we were six feet apart, it took all of us — students, staff , small businesses and community members to come together as one to help keep our community moving forward,” shared Class of 2021 Secretary Anna Deibert in her senior speech.
