The 277 members of Crisp County High School’s Class of 2020 officially graduated at commencement ceremonies held at the Cougar Den football field on Saturday. Graduation was initially planned to be held on Friday evening, but rain pushed the event back.

CCHS Principal Rusty Sowell said that 66 graduates – nearly 25 percent of the class – graduated with honors and the CCHS Class of 2020’s overall graduation rate was 90 percent. Those two figures are the school’s highest in history.
