The Carthage High School Class of 2020 took part in a senior parade Friday, May 22, 2020. The class spent their final months of school at home because of COVID-19, and a graduation ceremony planned May 29 is limited to family and a small number of invited guests. Friday's senior parade served as the community celebration.
