OVERTON — In a scene similar across the state, Overton’s Class of 2020 took part in a senior cruise through the community to celebrate their completion of the public education, while a graduation ceremony has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Overton Fire and Rescue lead the precession through the community. The vehicles following bore the Overton graduates, who had to celebrate at a safe distance due to a global virus outbreak.

Families and friends gathered along the streets to show their support for their graduates during this time of social distancing.
