Seniors Lina Coole and Caroline Althouse ride in style in an old Mustang.

In their caps and gowns, the Coral Shores Class of 2020 strolled down Islamorada’s Old Highway in vehicles for a graduation celebration unlike any other on May 27. Beginning at Treasure Village Montessori, the parade, led by the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, Florida Fish & Wildlife and Islamorada Fire Rescue, went three miles north to the high school where students received a bucket of gifts for their achievement. Family and friends stood along the road cheering on their loved ones as they drove by with big smiles.
