WEWAHITCHKA, Fl.(WJHG/WECP) - It was a warm night to be outside in a cap and gown Friday, but 53 Wewahitchka high school seniors didn't seem to mind.

On Friday the students walked across the field happy they could actually have a graduation ceremony in person.

Principal Jay Bidwell said you could see on the students' faces they were jubilant and added there was a different feel of gratefulness this year.

He said, if truth be told, the school board and staff were just as happy.

Thirty of the 53 students were given scholarships to Gulf Coast State College.
