The son of one of my cousins graduated high school.  Due to the curent restrictions the school could not provide a traditional graduation ceremony.  I thought what they came up with instead was more interesting and engaging.  The week before, all graduates and their families were invited to the school.  One-by-one, ten minutes apart, the graduates were handed their diplomas by their parents.  At the same time, the announcer told of the graduate's academic, extra-curricular and sports achievements, what college he or she had been accepted to, and the future career goal. All of this was videoed and played later on Facebook so that the extended families, like me, could view.  It was a wonderful graduation program.  Graduation 2020 will be something that will hopefully stand out in their memories as something distinctive.

Definitely creative! And safe to boot. And congratulations to your cousin (the young one and the parents!)
