Just because everyone still has to keep socially distant doesn't mean big moments can't be celebrated.

With the COVID-19 pandemic making a traditional commencement ceremony impossible, Gov. Mifflin High School held an alternate version Saturday. Graduates were invited to come to Mifflin Stadium with up to four family members for individual walks across the commencement stage.

Graduates and their families were required to wear masks.

One by one, students and their families were allowed to enter the stadium, where the student could take off his or her mask and make that iconic stroll across the stage. Each student's name was called over the loudspeaker, and each received a diploma while on stage.

Family members were given a chance to shoot photos and video of the ceremony.

Each individual ceremony took 10 to 15 minutes.
