Westside seniors greeted with parade while picking up caps and gowns


MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Westside High School seniors met some familiar faces while picking up cap and gowns.

While getting their graduation gear, teachers and school staff welcomed students with a parade. Educators lined the curb with signs and bells, while families drove by.

Principal Chip Horton says they want to make sure students know how special they are.

“This is a difficult time, but when we get through this, there are better things on the other side,” Horton said.

High School graduation ceremonies for Bibb County students is July 29-30, with those dates to be reassessed in early July. For more information, click here.
