BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — If you're looking for a textbook example of how to make the most of a graduation during a pandemic, look no further than the Stanley G. Falk School in Buffalo.

Forty graduates from the Class of 2020 and their families celebrated the completion of their senior year Monday night at the Transit Drive-In in Lockport.

A virtual ceremony video was played on the big screen.

"I ask that you stand tall with pride, for you will forever be remembered as the graduating class who made history as the world addressed a global pandemic," said Falk School Cambridge Campus Principal Lisa Dombek. "The world changed and you changed with it."

The Falk School provides educational programming in a structured, small-classroom setting for students ages 5 to 21 with special learning, social and emotional needs. The instruction is designed to help students successfully transfer from school to work and contribute positively to their communities.
