While society works to adapt to a new normal, Blackstone Valley Tech pulls out all the stops to celebrate its seniors this spring. As the Class of 2020 gears up for graduation, BVT hosts a senior parade commemorating this milestone, making sure these class moments are fun, unique, and memorable.
It was a bright, beautiful summer-like day, on Friday, May 15th, as the Class of 2020 and their families arrived at BVT to pick-up their class t-shirt. The students were not expecting to see what they saw. Over 75 of their teachers, instructors, administrators, and support staff eagerly awaiting their arrival, socially distanced along the driveway, parking lots, wrapping around the building to celebrate them with hoots, hollers, and cheers in what was a rolling rally parade.
Families were assigned an arrival time and asked to stay in their vehicles. To enter the driveway near the digital sign, plan to pull around the building heading towards the t-shirt distribution tent set-up outside of the fitness center. The parents were aware that they were part of a celebratory procession of vehicles that would slowly roll around the building. They arrived in true BVT fashion; with parental pride, on full display, the car décor was on point, and creativity did not disappoint.
From bubbles, balloons, and banners to the Upton Police, Fire, and EMS with flashing lights, horns, and sirens to noisemakers, decorated cars, and masked staff, family, and friends wearing BVT colors to celebrate the Class of 2020. It was uplifting to see each other and come together in this way. Even Sporty the Beaver made a brief appearance to wish our seniors well.
