CBC North hosted a one-hour celebration of N.W.T. high school graduates on Thursday.

N.W.T. Graduates 2020 aired live on CBC N.W.T.'s Facebook page, on CBC Radio One, and on our website. Northbeat host Juanita Taylor and The Trailbreaker's Loren McGinnis were the hosts for the evening.

There were stories and videos from teachers, alumni, valedictorians and grads.

Throughout the night, Taylor and McGinnis collected audience messages for grads over Facebook. It was a tumultuous school year with the COVID-19 pandemic interrupting the calendar, but these graduates didn't miss a beat.
