Taft 7-12 Graduation 2021

Traffic was backed up for miles as the procession made its way from Lighthouse Square down to Taft. Stopped motorists waved at the graduating class as they drove by in their colorfully decorated vehicles. Honks were plentiful and the sound of Lincoln City Police and North Lincoln Fire & Rescue sirens could be heard throughout the town.

Since the 70s, a senior graduation parade of some fashion has been a part of Lincoln City, with senior classes planning the event as tradition dictates. Some years have been missed due to uncontrollable circumstances, such as last year and COVID-19, but weather doesn’t stop the Tigers, as evidenced by the sideways rain and stormy conditions three years ago.

Graduation will be at 11:21 a.m. Saturday and restrictions will be in place due to COVID-19, with graduates having four tickets to hand out to whomever they want to attend.

According to Taft High 7-12 staff, 93 seniors will potentially graduate as the class of 2021.
