This year’s graduates from the Class of 2020 endured a senior year unlike anything other, as the COVID-19 pandemic closed schools and forced Fresno-area and San Joaquin Valley students to switch from learning on campus to learning at home.
When those seniors left their schools in March, little did they know they would not return to their classrooms.
Over those months, experiences were lost: No prom. No spring sports and activities. No gathering at lunch to exchange yearbooks.
And, no graduation on campus.
The Class of 2020 finds itself at a crossroads in history. These graduates leave high school poised to help lead our world forward to a better place. For that, they have our enduring confidence, and we salute them.
To the Class of 2020, congratulations!
Please note: Not all area high schools participated in this project.
