Monessen School District and the City of Monessen joined together to honor the Monessen Class of 2020 on June 12, 2020, with a big parade. Graduation ceremonies took place before the parade at the High School Auditorium, with strict CDC safety guidelines.

Donovan Prout, MHS graduate, decorated his car for the parade and showed his school spirit as he stands up out of the car.

“School and city officials agree this (parade) is a great way to bring the community together to honor the Senior Class,” said Monessen Mayor Matt Shorraw. He added, “We’re very proud of our seniors, and we are proud to call them Monessen citizens.”

The parade lined up at about 7:30 pm, at the Monessen High School/Middle School Parking Lot on State Road. Excited high school graduates in decorated cars and police and emergency vehicles traveled through Monessen’s neighborhoods. After winding through the city, the parade finally ended at 10th St. and Donner in front of the Mon Valley EMS.

A note of gratitude is extended to all those who helped make the parade possible: to the Salvation Army and Pasta Shoppe for the meals, to the bus drivers, Police and Fire Depts. for their participation, and to anyone else who volunteered time.
