Yorktown High School Class of 2021 Graduation ceremony was for Friday, June 18, 2021, outdoors in the school’s football field, Greenbrier stadium.
It was an accomplishment to hold graduation in person.
“It was definitely hot. I think it was best for Covid safety to do the ceremony outdoors but I would have preferred having graduation at the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) building if it were a normal year,” said Yorktown graduate Hannah Knittig. “The students were right in the sun and water didn’t help much. My parents, who were in the shade, actually thought graduation on the football field was better than at DAR. … All in all, I thought the ceremony was great, the student speakers Kevin Ferrell and Rylei Porter were fantastic.”
