Bethel Regional High School seniors graduated on Saturday, May 16. They didn't have the traditional graduation ceremony. Instead, seniors rode in a parade down Chief Eddie Hoffman Highway, and then gathered in a school parking lot to listen to commencement speeches over the KYUK airwaves with their families. It was another adjustment in a semester of adaptation during the coronavirus pandemic. Two of the seniors, Iris Jimmie and Canaar Charlie, joined KYUK to talk about this unusual graduation, and their final semester during the pandemic.
