Spencerville Adventist Academy Holds Socially Distanced Graduation
Story by Heidi Wetmore
Chesapeake Conference's Spencerville Adventist Academy (SAA) held an outdoor commencement service during the COVID-19 pandemic late July for both its eighth-grade and senior classes. Chesapeake Conference’s New Hope church in Fulton, Md., located in a county where outdoor group gatherings of up to 250 people were allowed, graciously shared their lawn so that the Class of 2020 could have an in-person ceremony with their immediate families. The event was also livestreamed so that other relatives and friends could be a part of the celebration.
“SAA is so proud of its graduates and grateful that, in this year of unusual circumstances, they could be honored for their achievements in a public way,” says Head Principal Tissiana Bowerman.
