Alpena High School seniors recognized in bright lights

ALPENA, Mich -Graduates across the country are experiencing the disappointment of not being able to celebrate their accomplishments in the traditional manner of a commencement.

Today the parking lot at Alpena High school was supposed to be filled with excited seniors celebrating their milestone of graduation

but instead the school was empty with only a few staff members preparing the scoreboard for tonight’s salute to the seniors.

Principal Thomas Berriman, said it was heartbreaking to have to change things up and he wants the seniors to keep their spirits lifted.
