Gillette high school seniors reminisce, inspire, look to the future at 2021 graduations

One day, one building, two graduations.

Long high school careers had been made even longer by the disruption of last year due to COVID-19 and the extra precautions that lasted the entirety of their final year on each campus. But on Sunday, the seniors from Thunder Basin High School and Campbell County High School finally walked the stage to receive their hard-earned diplomas.
