Berkshire Celebrates Drive-In Commencement with Dignity!




The Berkshire Local Schools honored the graduating senior Class of 2020 with an innovative and spirited drive-in graduation ceremony and the Mayfield Drive In earlier this week. More than 100 cars filed into the Drive-In grounds on a seasonal May evening and participants sat in their cars, on tailgates and lawn chairs to celebrate this special senior class. Once the Drive-In ceremony began, Superintendent Stoddard made invigorated remarks about ‘taking the reins and leading today’ and Board President Wadsworth, a Berkshire alumnus, encouraged students to have fun along the journey because time passes by quickly. In recorded remarks, High School Principal Mr. King shared the talents, treasures and patience of the members of the Class of 2020. After remarks from the Salutatorian and the co-Valedictorians, each member crossed the stage and the video was displayed on the Drive-In screen. Rounds of applause were given throughout the entire ceremony. The Berkshire Local Schools expresses its gratitude to G-TV for filming the graduates cross the stage during the week of May 4th and for compiling the montage that was played during the Drive-In Ceremony!
