Photo gallery | Pomp despite circumstance: Drive-thru commencement celebrates island grads

A drive-thru commencement ceremony may not have been the finale they’d spent four years envisioning, but the graduating seniors of the Class of 2020, with the help of their family, teachers and friends, eagerly bedecked the front of Bainbridge High School and their respective cars with festive adornments and made the best of things Saturday.

The annual joint Bainbridge and Eagle Harbor high school graduation ceremony, properly modified for current events, returned to the BHS campus Saturday, June 13. Maintaining social distancing and current government guidelines, school officials said, were the reasons for the revised ceremony, which saw students gather in the parking lot of the nearby Bainbridge Island Aquatic Center and drive in small groups to campus.

The Review’s Luciano Marano was there (about 6 feet away, to be precise) camera in hand, ready to capture the action. His favorite photos are collected here.
