CLEWISTON — Clewiston High School’s seniors of the Class of 2020 were celebrated and honored with a “Be the Light” car parade on Cane Field the evening of Friday, May 1. CHS seniors decorated their vehicles, while friends and family cheered them on with handmade posters. While it wasn’t the end to the year they had all hoped for, it was a wonderful celebration filled with honking horns, waving signs, and lots of school spirit!
