METUCHEN, NJ -- Saint Joseph High School (Metuchen) hosted its 2020 live, in-person graduation ceremony on Monday, July 27.

Restrictions on the size of public gatherings derailed the timeline for the event but not the joy in finally celebrating the graduating class.   Families were distanced across the school's athletic field for the event which started when students began to file onto the field to join their loved ones.

Presentations were given by Principal Anne Rivera and President Justin Fleetwood during the ceremony.  In addition, seniors William Zafian and Miguel Zavalla addressed their classmates in their role as co-valedictorians
