Texas: Globe Life Field's first event is a high school graduation

The first event at the all-new Globe Life Field was high school graduation.
Irving ISD’s Jack E. Singley Academy hosted a ceremony at the new facility on Friday afternoon. It was the first graduation ceremony of 49 graduations from 18 different districts that will take place at the ballpark through the end of June.
Mariela Lara, graduating senior said,  “All of my classmates are back here and I’m so proud of all of us,”.
375 seniors are in the Singley Class of 2020 and will graduate at the new stadium. This ceremony wasn’t a part of their plan in August. But Irving ISD moved all of its ceremonies to the venue due to the coronavirus pandemic and strict restrictions imposed by the government.
Magda Hernandez, Irving ISD Superintendent said,  “They worked hard, they deserve it, they made it to the finish line, so we’re here,” It was a great experience complete in itself with congratulatory messages from Texas Rangers players.


 Zwany Viruet, graduating senior said, “I’ve been in school since I was 3. I was in pre, pre-K. So you think about it and you’re like, ‘Do I really not get to walk the stage?’ Then this is such an amazing opportunity,”
The ball club was happy to host this event and was learn from this experience.
Sean Decker, Texas Rangers spokesman said, “We’re keeping folks socially distanced at the restrooms, a ton of enhanced cleaning protocols in terms of what we do pre, during and then after the event,”.
The graduates, well, they’re just plain happy.
Christian Carbajal said, “I’m just thankful for the opportunity, especially how everything has been going, this is great, this is amazing,”.
