CORNING, Iowa — In the Iowa town where late-night talk show host Johnny Carson was born nearly 95 years ago, graduates at a local high school were able to put on their own show.
Adams County has not seen a large number of coronavirus cases, so school officials believed that with proper social distancing, a graduation ceremony was feasible.
Each graduate had a marked-off section of the football field and kept a safe distance from classmates. The graduates wore masks, and all students had their temperatures taken before they walked onto the field, KCCI reported.
“They worked 12 to 13 years of part of their life trying to get things accomplished and then we run into this kind of situation and it’s an important step for them in their life," Vince Abraham, a parent, told the television station. “We’ll see where they go from this step on.”
