VISD in-person graduation concludes with Liberty Academy commencement

VICTORIA, Texas — VISD in-person graduations concluded on Friday with Liberty Academy’s commencement ceremony at Memorial Stadium. Friday’s ceremony for Liberty’s graduating seniors followed East and West’s ceremonies from Monday through Thursday.

All five ceremonies adhered to the current social distancing requirements, but gave graduates the opportunity to walk across the stage to receive their diplomas and pose for pictures.

“To get to this point and then have COVID-19 come in, working remotely, it is definitely a testament to these students perseverance that they were able to work through this and we still have them walking across that stage,” said Cheborah Ross, interim principal at Liberty Academy.

About 120 students received their diplomas at Friday’s ceremony.
