What a difference a year makes.

A year after the COVID-19 pandemic wreaked havoc on Fulton County public and private high school graduation ceremonies, forcing schools to shift them to a virtual or drive-in format or delay them until the summer or fall, the vaccine’s rollout and a decrease in cases has allowed schools to return to in-person commencements.

While these events likely will still include masks and social distancing, they’re a far cry from 2020.
