John Krasinski Set To Hold Virtual Graduation For High School Seniors


BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Actor and Newton-native John Krasinski is set to hold a virtual graduation for high school seniors on his web show "Some Good News." This comes as the coronavirus pandemic has cut senior-year traditions short for many students across the country as they wrap up high school online.

The ceremony is set to to take place on YouTube on Sunday May 3, 2020.

In a tweet, Krasinski wrote, "After all hose long hours you've put in. All the hard work you've put in... you're gettin a graduation!"

The actor is currently asking seniors to send in their questions for speakers at the online graduation.

Earlier this month, Krasinski held a virtual prom for seniors as the event was cancelled for many students because of the pandemic. He also DJ'd the dance on the YouTube show.

Also on a previous show, Krasinski treated Boston health care workers to a baseball surprise by taking them to Fenway Park. David Ortiz also made an appearance, offering them four free tickets for life.
