Special Masonic Temple Lighting Planned to Celebrate T.C. Graduates

While T.C. Williams High School students aren’t gathering in-person to celebrate graduation, local celebrations are being held including a special lighting of the George Washington Masonic Temple.

“On Saturday, June 13, 2020, we encourage all residents of the most wonderful City of Alexandria to light up their homes in red, white and blue to support the graduating Class of 2020 from T.C. Williams High School,” Principal Peter Balas said in a newsletter. “I am excited to announce that the George Washington Masonic Temple will be illuminated in red, white and blue on June 13 in recognition of our graduates. Let’s light up the whole city!”

ACPS has a website set up for a virtual graduation event that day — featuring a comically outdated dab — but there are few other details so far.

Balas said locals should try to light their homes up red, white and blue to honor graduates on June 13. Those who participate are also encouraged to share their pictures with Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) via @ACPSk12 on Twitter using the #TCW2020 hashtag, or post on the ACPS Facebook page.
