Town of Clover to honor the graduating Class of 2020
Since the year has prompted everyone to press pause in our day to day lives, including milestones such as graduating high school, the Town of Clover wanted to do something special to honor the graduating class of 2020. So what better way to show off the brilliant minds of this group, than by giving them a parade of support!

Join us on Sunday, May 31 within Clover town limits as we celebrate the graduating class of 2020! Clover High School Principal, Rod Ruth said this parade will salute approximately 500 graduating seniors in a safe way. The parade is scheduled to kick-off at 2:00 PM, with students departing Clover High School and parading down Highway 55/Bethel Street, towards Clover Memorial Stadium until they reach Downtown Clover. Clover Police Department will be assisting with the parade. We encourage the community to line the streets (appropriately distanced) and cheer on the students as they drive by.

Inspiration for this event materialized after Councilman Wes Spurrier watched a clip on the evening broadcast, “I was watching the news and saw where a school near the coast of SC organized a parade through neighborhoods in their district and thought, ‘Wow, how cool is that?!’ We should do something like that in Clover, as it could be something they will forever remember. These kids’ senior year has been SO challenging and impactful in their young lives. Anything we can do to recognize these seniors would certainly be appropriate.”
