Carlton Honors Senior Graduates with Photos Hanging Downtown

Carlton has 46 graduates and each has their name and photo on a light post in the center of town.

CARLTON, Minn. – Downtown Carlton looks a little different these days as one of the main streets is lined with pictures of this year’s senior graduates.

Carlton has 46 graduates and each has their name and photo on a light post in the center of town.

A group of parents came up with the idea knowing the seniors were missing out on so many big events.

They were even able to fund the project through the All Night Graduation party fund that wasn’t used.

“We just were trying to think of what else we could do for the kids and they’re going through a really hard time right now the seniors are missing out on a lot of different events and prom and sports and everything else we are just trying to do what we can to make things a little easier for them,” said Ryan Swanson, a parent of a graduating senior.

He also says many of the kids have been excited to see their photos hanging downtown.
