The Class of 2020 came into the world in the midst of the aftermath of the tragic 9/11 terrorist attacks. The Class of 2020 will graduate high school during the coronavirus pandemic. There is no doubt that this year’s graduating class can preserve and succeed in even the most challenging of times. Although they will not enjoy the typical senior festivities such as prom and graduation, their futures ahead are still worth celebrating and honoring.
