HAWTHORNE, NJ - For the graduating class of 2020, things are far from normal.  With graduations canceled or moved online, they have had to adapt to a "new normal" amid the pandemic.  But this does not mean that celebrations could not be had--they just require a little thinking outside the box.

Taylor Conroy of Hawthorne graduated from Drexel University but did not have the traditional end-of-year ceremony as those who came before her did.  Her family home has a lawn sign congratulating their graduate, and her sister, Mackenzie, thought perhaps a little celebratory parade was in order. 

Wearing her graduation robe, cap, and with a flute of something celebratory, Taylor settled into her chariot of honor--in this case, a wagon--while her proud sister pulled her around the neighborhood in a victory lap.
