The graduating class of 2020 will not walk in the traditional fashion. Due to the impact of the Coronavirus, most students have not even seen the inside of a classroom since mid-March. While students will miss out on what should be the carefree and exciting time of the last days of class and goodbyes to friends and classmates, they remain strong and determined.
Our #SeeHER Spotlight shines on the Class of 2020. As they move forward in a time of crisis unlike any other, we congratulate them and hope they can take encouragement from the words of former President Barack Obama:
"If the world's gonna get better, it's gonna be up to you. That realization may be kind of intimidating... but I hope it's also inspiring."
Also offering words of hope and inspiration, is media powerhouse Oprah Winfrey:
"Can you, the class of 2020 show us not how to put the pieces back together again, but how to create a new and more evolved normal?"
While a traditional graduation may not be possible, YouTube has put together a unique virtual ceremony featuring celebrities and performers such as Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift and Beyoncé to name just a few. You can join in this celebration, streaming live on YouTube Saturday, June 7, 12:00PM PT.
