After Sunday's baccalaureate at Lake Waccamaw United Methodist Church, ECHS Seniors were honored with a parade at the Lake.

Seniors celebrated in style Sunday with a baccalaureate service and parade around Lake Waccamaw as the community came out to celebrate the East Columbus High School graduating Class of 2021. 

The baccalaureate service was held at Lake Waccamaw United Methodist Church at 5 p.m. for the happy seniors. A parade followed immediately afterwards that started from Dale’s Seafood up Lakeshore Drive, ending on Flemington Drive next to the Boys and Girls Home. Students showed their senior pride with decorated vehicles, caps and gowns, and even an alligator or two. 

It’s been an unusual year for the graduating class with remote learning and staggered class schedules, but they have pulled through with full hearts, and many memories in tow. 

Congratulations, East Columbus Class of 2021.
