KINGSPORT — Before the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Saturday, May 23, was to have been Dobyns-Bennett High School’s Class of 2020 graduation.

Instead, an in-person graduation has been moved to July 17-18. However, D-B Principal Chris Hampton posted a video showing each of the more than 500 graduates Saturday morning to Facebook and YouTube. The event, postponed because of social distancing and government mandates to avoid large gatherings, was to have started about the time the video was posted.
