Senior parade in Jackson

A parade was held for Jackson High School seniors Friday, May 29, 2020, in Jackson. Event organizer Mendi McDowell of Jackson, mother of Jackson senior Autumn Gragg, said the event materialized after the number of people was limited at graduation. “We just wanted the safest way that we would be able to celebrate our seniors,” McDowell said. She said the parade route was made long so people would have space to feel conformable. She said the parade started at the high school and went though the park before turning around and heading back to the school.
