A high school principal didn’t want the coronavirus pandemic to ruin graduation — so he drove to the homes of 240 senior students to hand out diplomas.

Scott Rudes, the principal of Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in Dallas, TX, knew his senior class was sad about the coronavirus pandemic shortening the school year. So during a video call with students, he blurted out a half-baked idea. “I said, ‘I am going to see all of you to give your diplomas,” Rudes tells Yahoo Life. Seeing their thrilled reaction, he couldn’t let his students down.

On May 22, the father of three dressed in graduation regalia and loaded up his car with 240 diplomas. Then, covering 1,750 miles, he drove to each student’s home to personally deliver sanitized diplomas and spend a few minutes congratulating their families.
