BALTIMORE (WJZ) — With the coronavirus pandemic canceling nearly all graduations ceremonies for high school seniors, Baltimore Polytechnic Institute is honoring its students in a special and socially distant way.

The school’s parking lot has been painted over in chalk with the names of every graduate; 369 of them total.


The school told students to trust that their name is included, and they have the blisters to prove it.

They added they hope this small gesture will make the students smile.
