WINDSOR, ONT. -- It has been a challenging year for many students, and even more so for graduates who are celebrating a milestone without the usual events that come along with it.

So CTV Windsor has been paying tribute to Windsor-Essex grads during the 6 p.m. newscast and online to offer a chance at a proper send-off.

Many families expressed pride in their graduate’s achievements by sending in photos and offering words of encouragement.

Take a look at some of the local graduates moving into the next chapter below.
