KANSAS CITY, Mo. — With the traditional graduation ceremony postponed, staff at Center High School in Kansas City, Missouri, came up with a unique way to honor the 2020 senior class.
“We’re going to deliver yard signs to each member of our graduating class this year and let them know we love them, we miss them and they’re not forgotten," said Principal Edward Tate.
A group of about 10 volunteers split up into groups of three to deliver signs to the 130 members of the Class of 2020. The class has been learning exclusively online since the escalation of the COVID-19 pandemic forced in-person class to be suspended.
“They didn’t really have to do this. They could’ve just planned something else. But knowing that they did this... It means a lot," senior Cheyanne Fleming said. “All my hard work paid off and I can do amazing things now.”
“Center is all about family," Tate added. "We love them, we care about them and that’s what family is all about.”
Center High School has postponed its graduation to June 28 at the Starlight Theater.
