Webster High School Holds Drive-Up Graduation Ceremony

TULSA, Okla. - Tulsa Public Schools is holding “drive-up graduations” at high schools.

Webster is one of two high schools in the Tulsa school district to have a graduation on Tuesday.

East-Central is also doing this same thing.

The district said a ceremony like this still keeps everyone physically distanced and avoids the large crowds from gathering - but allows students to wear a cap and gown and turn their tassel.

Students we talked to said it's a graduation they will never forget.

Senior William Freeman said he wishes he could have had a traditional graduation but is still happy he gets to do this.

His mom decorated their car to help celebrate.

"It's something. It's better than nothing for sure,” said Freeman. “I do wish they would have waited a longer and did an actual graduation with a stage. But I'm going to take what I can get."

The district still hopes to hold traditional graduation ceremonies this July as long as the city allows it.

A decision on that will be made early next month.
