Surprise for Willow River seniors

Loud sirens, flashing lights, bright balloons, and lots of good wishes surprised Willow River seniors Friday night when they came to the football field to pick up their caps and gowns. School staff lined Doe Street with "We Love Our Seniors!" signs held up to welcome them and cheer them on to graduation. The local fire departments greeted them as they arrived and led the senior parade from the field as the evening ended.

Wearing masks and gloves, seniors posed for group pictures on the football field in front of the Rebel scoreboard that shone 2020 in bright lights. Willow River staff and Parent Teacher Organization organized the event, gathering community donations for gift bags, graduate lawn signs, and also setting out autograph sheets for senior messages. A "drive through" graduation ceremony is planned for Friday, May 22nd in the Willow River school parking lot.
