The Minnesota New Country School graduation ceremony took place under unusual circumstances at 1 p.m. Saturday, May 30 — in a parking lot with a limited amount of fanfare.

Beforehand, graduates, families and community members were asked to line up at Bender Park at 12:30 p.m. for a senior car parade. Decorating cars was encouraged, as it moved through the primary streets of Henderson.

In the parking lot, students were handed diplomas and celebrated by staff.
