Natchez High, NECA graduates receive diplomas, virtual graduation ceremony tonight

Natchez High School and Natchez Early College Academy students received their diplomas in possibly the most unique way in the history of the school.

Although there was no “Pomp and Circumstance” and no cheering fans from the family and friends, Thursday morning’s diploma ceremony did involve caps and gowns and a few hugs and cheers.

Because of COVID-19, students participated in a drive-through diplomas ceremony at the high school Thursday. Tonight a broadcast of the Natchez High School and Natchez Early College Academy graduation ceremony will be streamed at 7 p.m. tonight on Facebook, Instagram and on the Natchez Adams School District website.
