Morristown High School on Thursday completed what one hopes is a once-in-a-lifetime graduation trifecta, with the last of three socially distanced outdoor ceremonies on the football field.

Featuring remarks by Principal Mark Manning to masked grads and guests spaced apart on the gridiron, these gatherings followed a virtual commencement and a diploma curbside pickup last month.

The coronavirus pandemic forced cancellation of traditional graduations in 2020. Best wishes to the Class of ’20 — and better luck to the Class of ’21.
