Senior Scrapbook: Memorable 2020 Graduation For Bruins
After the stadium lights and PA music were turned off and the last ‘Friday Night Lights’ celebration had concluded at the football stadium on May 22, the staff of Riverbank High School had one final treat for 2020 graduates gathered with their families at the fence lines at the northeast corner of the field. When all was dark, flood lights falling on the press box at the top of the grandstand showed the large 2020 numbers attached to the safety railing on its roof. Photo By Ric McGinnis

It wasn’t what they anticipated and something in their wildest dreams they probably never imagined … but members of the Class of 2020 at Riverbank High School did get their diplomas and had a bit of a commencement celebration on Friday, May 22.

Here are a few photos from the event, which included both daytime and nighttime activities on the RHS campus.
