Anthony had his unique 2020 graduation today. It was a drive-by graduation. We drove up to the platform, Anthony hopped out walked across the stage, received his diploma, posed for pictures and hopped back into the car.

The graduation “procession” was held by driving our cars to one of the church buildings in our neighborhood and having Bishop Layne Slack had Anthony his Seminary Graduation Diploma through the van window. The whole family was in the van and we did a Berky Van Waggle while in the processional line.
Anthony Berky joins the graduating class of 2020. One of the most unusual years for high school graduates with the cessation of classes for the 2nd half of the year due to the COVID-19 virus.
Anthony finished his high school career with classes in welding and furniture design – some of his favorite classes. He was unable to finish some of his projects for those classes but is looking forward to finishing a great looking bookshelf.
Ammon wrote a book about his Mom and how he perceives her. Most of the boys have done this assignment over the years but this is the first time we recorded mom’s first reading and her reactions.
