Walmart Hosts Graduation Ceremonies for Class of 2020


COLLEGE PARK, GA – Not able to host their 2020 high school graduation, a school in College Park, Georgia moved their commencement ceremony to the only place in town allowed to have large gatherings of people, the local Walmart.   Students participated in a graduation ceremony here in Walmart.  Like so many other 2020 graduates being denied graduation, it turns out that Walmarts across America are one of the few government-sponsored safe havens from the COVID-19 virus.  While some on social media mocked the celebration in Walmart, parents defended the decision saying students deserved to graduate from high school with some level of dignity and acknowledgment.  Another graduation was held in a Walmart in Macon, Georgia this week.
