Columbia Basin College is making sure students still feel special by passing out their
cap and gowns along with CBC themed masks through a drive-thru style.
Melanie Casciato tell Action News they want 2020 graduates to know they're loved and
celebrated by the community.
"This is our future workforce and these students have worked so hard for this degree.
Some of them have been balancing life and families amid COVID-19 and so it's just
essential that we take the time to pause and just honor all their hard work," explained
Next friday a parade for staff and graduates only will be taking place 'drive-thru'
style on the CBC campus.
Congrats to the class of 2020 and all your hard work!
