With classes shut down and the prospects for a traditional graduation ceremony still in limbo, the North Dickinson County School District on Wednesday used a Michigan State Police-escorted caravan of school buses, fire and rescue trucks and staff vehicles to deliver caps, gowns and other gifts to most of the 22 seniors in its Class of 2020. Each senior was “adopted” by someone who bought gifts. Along with the caps and gowns every member of the class got a hand-drawn portrait done by local artist Tina Anderson.
