Despite the upheaval caused by the coronavirus pandemic in their academic year, high school seniors across Galveston County are preparing to celebrate their graduation.  

Texas City Independent School District seniors from La Marque High School were treated to a drive-through cap and gown pick-up parade Friday, during which seniors received their traditional graduation garb, yard signs and a healthy dose of applause from faculty, family and friends watching from a safe distance.  

A similar celebration was held at the same time for Texas City High School seniors.

Dickinson Independent School District gave out caps and gowns in a similar celebratory fashion on Wednesday.
